A 21-year-old woman has been charged with vehicular homicide, drunken driving and other offenses after she pulled out in front of a motorcycle on Route 175 in Odenton Friday night, killing the rider, Anne Arundel County police said.
Kayla Nicole Joy, 21, pulled the GMC box truck out of a parking lot on Route 175 before 8:30 p.m. and was struck by a motorcycle driven by Ian Gregory Vangenderen, 23, of Odenton who was traveling northbound near Berger Street.
Vengenderen was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police responded just after 8:30 p.m. and after an investigation determined that the cause of the accident was Joy’s failure to yield the right of way to the motorcycle. Police also determined that Joy was under the influence of alcohol.
Joy, who was unhurt and remained at the scene, was arrested and charged with two counts of manslaughter by motor vehicle, two counts of homicide by motor vehicle, driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired and failure to yield right of way.
According to court records, Joy is being held without bond. A bond review is scheduled for Monday. She could not be reached for comment and no attorney was listed as representing her in court documents.
The accident remains under investigation.
