Salisbury Man Dies in ATV Crash


SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury man has died from injuries sustained in an ATV crash that occurred on the city's west side, according to police.

Salisbury police said the crash occurred at around 5:20 p.m. Wednesday in the area of West Road and West Isabella Street.

Police said the investigation revealed the driver, identified as 29-year-old Vincent Alphonso Parker, was operating a 2004 Suzuki Quad runner 4x4 four-wheeler on the roadway at a high rate of speed. The vehicle was traveling northbound on West Road when Parker lost control of the vehicle and exited the roadway, according to police. Investigators said Parker was then ejected from the ATV as it traveled across an uneven section of pavement. Both the ATV and Parker subsequently struck a concrete barrier in the parking lot, police said.

Parker was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

Investigators said Parker was not wearing a helmet or utilizing any other safety equipment prior to the crash. Alcohol was not involved in the incident, police noted.
