A Marine stationed at Fort Meade was killed when he was struck while riding his motorcycle in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, on Friday. County police said James Ray Walden, 21, from Peoria Heights, Illinois, suffered fatal injuries when a car crossed a double yellow line and stuck him while he was on his motorcycle. The crash occurred on Patuxent Road, near Conway Road, in Gambrills. When officers arrived on the scene, the driver, Martin Martinez Ballinas, 28, of Crofton, fled.
