Police have identified the man killed in a motorcycle accident Friday morning on Route 15 near Frederick as Dion Bagby, a 27-year-old who had recently earned a spot on the Ravens' cheerleading squad.
Bagby was traveling north when a Volkswagen Jetta driven by Amy Sue Harrison of Thurmont began making a left-hand turn onto Monocacy Boulevard. Bagby's Suzuki motorcycle struck the passenger side of the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Harrison suffered no serious injuries but was transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons, police said. The crash is still under investigation.
Bagby, of Vienna, Va., is an Oklahoma native and was a cheerleader at the University of Louisville. He spent the last three years as a coach at the Infinity All Stars gym, working with about 100 kids. He was driving to Camp Woodward, in central Pennsylvania, to work with several of his athletes on the last day of a week-long camp when he was killed.
"His excitement for what he did was always there," Infinity's general manager, Suzanne Mansfield, said. "He was a bright light — a star."
