Baltimore Co. fire lieutenant killed in motorcycle crash

Authorities say a Baltimore County fire lieutenant was one of two motorcyclists killed in a head-on collision in Laurel.

The crash occurred around 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Prince George’s County police say 23-year-old Fahad Iqbal of Laurel crossed the center line while negotiating a slight curve on Laurel-Bowie Road. His motorcycle collided head-on with a motorcycle driven by 63-year-old Hubert Harrison Jr. of Bowie. Both men died at the scene.

Baltimore County fire officials say Harrison was a 29-year veteran of the department. He was promoted to lieutenant in 2009. Officials say he had completed his shift as a dispatcher in Towson and was on his way home when the crash occurred.

Police say they’re not sure why Iqbal crossed the center line. The crash remains under investigation.
