The preliminary investigation indicates that the rider of a motorcycle, identified as Rudy Anthony Coles (48) of the 500 block of Valcour Road, 21228, was traveling eastbound on Liberty Road when a 2018 Toyota Corolla traveling westbound in the center turn lane attempted to turn left into the Exxon gas station in front of the motorcycle.

The driver of the Corolla was not injured.
