THURMONT, Md. — A motorcycle operator has died of injuries suffered in a collision shortly before 10 a.m. Sunday in the 5800 block of Md. 77.

Bruce Carroll Burnett of Frederick, Md., was on an eastbound motorcycle that skidded on the wet roadway and crossed the center line, according to a news release from Maryland State Police.

“After crossing into the westbound lanes, (Burnett) was trapped between the motorcycle and a second vehicle,” the news release said.

An ambulance transported Burnett to Meritus Medical Center in Washington County, where he was pronounced dead at 10:51 a.m., the news release said.

Police closed the road for three hours and worked with the National Park Service to divert traffic through Cunningham Falls State Park.
