A motorcyclist died Tuesday when he crashed into a barrier, police report, on an access road of a raceway in Budds Creek.

Killed in the 12:45 p.m. crash was Aaron Slemker, a 21-year-old Clayton, Ohio resident who was participating in a racing class on the access road behind the dragstrip at Maryland International Raceway, according to the St. Mary’s sheriff’s office. Slemker lost control of the motorcycle he was riding before it struck the cement barrier, the sheriff’s office reports, and he died at the scene while life-saving efforts were administered.

Sheriff’s office accident reconstruction team members are continuing their investigation.
