Posted:

CHARLOTTE HALL, Md. (AP) - Authorities in St. Mary's County say two motorcyclists were injured in a crash with a horse-drawn buggy on a road in Charlotte Hall.

The county sheriff's office says a buggy trying to turn left from the shoulder of state Route 6 on Thursday pulled into the path of 2 westbound motorcycles.

The sheriff's office says 52-year-old Donald Fridell's motorcycle hit the horse and he was thrown into a ditch on the eastbound side and 81-year-old Lawrence Jones was thrown onto the road.

Fridell was flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital with life-threatening injuries and Jones was taken to an area hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.

The sheriff's office says there's no indication that speed, alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash.
