    A Maryland motorcyclist was killed in a crash over the weekend in Largo after police say he may have run a red light Sunday night.

    He has been identified as Steven Ricardo-Terrell Hurdle, 35, of Charlotte Hall.

    Police suspect that prior to the accident, Hurdle fled from Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Police.

    Around 11 p.m., Hurdle was driving east on Route 214 near Interstate 95 when he T-boned a Hyundai Sonata that was trying to make a left turn into a westbound lane.

    Authorities say he may have been speeding and failed to stop for a red light.

    Hurdle suffered multiple trauma related injuries and was pronounced dead at Prince George's Hospital Center.

    While the driver of the Sonata was not found to be at fault for the accident, she was driving under the influence of alcohol, authorities said. The Sonata driver and her passenger were not injured.

    The accident remains under investigation.

    It was the second deadly motorcycle crash in Prince George's County over the weekend. On Saturday, another motorcyclist died in a collision with an SUV in Capitol Heights. He has been identified as Allen Joseph Washington, 24, of Southeast D.C.
