Howard police said Galdamez, who was driving a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle, was traveling westbound in the 10500 block of Guilford Road at 1:14 p.m. when he crossed into the eastbound lanes and hit a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser.

The driver of the Chrysler, Jorge Alexander Parra Morales, 40, of Laurel, was taken to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious injuries. He has since been released, according to police.

Two passengers in the Chrysler also were injured. A woman and a boy, also from Laurel, were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment of serious but not life-threatening injuries.
