On Friday, May 4, 2018, at approximately 1:21 pm, a member of the community called 911 regarding hearing multiple sounds of gunshots and described seeing an ATV and motorized dirt bike that might be involved.
Mr. Jeffrey Price was traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of traffic, the wrong way, at a high rate of speed on Division Avenue, Northeast.
An officer, who was in the 5100 block of Fitch Place, Northeast, heard the call for service and began to look for the illegal dirt bike. The officer entered the intersection onto
Division Avenue, Northeast, when the motorcycle operated by Mr. Price struck the passenger side of the police vehicle causing the air bags to deploy.
The illegal dirt bike operated by Mr. Price left a skid mark measuring 114 feet prior to impact with the police vehicle. The skid marks begin in the southbound lane in the opposite direction of traffic and continue into the northbound lane. Mr. Price was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Officers performed first aid until DC Fire and EMS transported Mr. Price to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead. It was later determined the dirt bike was stolen four days earlier, on April 30, 2018, from Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
