PRINCE FREDERICK—On July 29 at approximately 12:46 p.m., members of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office Patrol Bureau and the Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the area of Sheridan Point Road and Fig Point Road in Prince Frederick for the report of a serious crash involving a dirt bike.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 1999 Yamaha YZ125 dirt bike was traveling along Sheridan Point Road prior to Fig Point Road.
