Police Investigate Fatal Hit And Run Crash Involving ATV Leaving Man Dead, Child Injured

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. – The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal collision involving an ATV. The deceased ATV operator is 41-year-old Michael Kelly of Upper Marlboro. Efforts are underway to identify the rider of a motorcycle involved in the collision. The rider did not remain on the scene.  

On November 17, 2023, at approximately 8:50 pm, officers responded to the area of Woodyard Road and Sherwood Drive for a collision. Kelly was pronounced deceased on the scene. A child passenger on the ATV was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

    1. Doesn’t matter whatsoever when the motorcycle driver killed someone and just left the scene. Manslaughter at the least motorcycle probably wasn’t insured or something else illegal. I can’t imagine being that ignorant that something like that comes to your mind first after someone was murdered and a child was critically injured by a worthless hit and run clown

      1. Murdered ? You can’t be serious!?!
