Bicyclist Identified In Gaithersburg Fatal

<img width="114" height="106" align="left" src="" alt=""> Yesterday evening at 5:46 p.m. officers from the 6th District responded to a report of a bicyclist struck in the area of Great Seneca Highway and Quince Orchard Road. Officers and Fire Rescue arrived on the scene and found a 15 year old male had been struck near the intersection while attempting to cross the roadway and later died of his injuries. The young man has been identified as Rageim Wade of the 700 block of Clopper Road in Gaithersburg. Preliminary investigation by The Montgomery County Police Collision Reconstruction Unit has determined the bicyclist was traveling north on Quince Orchard Road when he was struck by a black Volkswagen Jetta, driven by Rebecca Bannister of the 900 block of Hillside Lake Terrace, in Gaithersburg. The Jetta was traveling west on Great Seneca Highway and struck Wade prior to clearing the roadway. Investigators have not yet determined if the bicyclist was in or near the crosswalk at the time he was struck. It is still unclear at this time the light sequence when the young man attempted to cross the intersection.

No charges have been filed against the driver of the vehicle. As is standard procedure, a complete investigation is being conducted by the Collision Reconstruction Unit. Any charges will be determined at the conclusion of the investigation in cooperation with the Montgomery County State

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
