I drove past the accident on my way to work the night it happened, and there isn’t any place for the bus to have made a left turn heading northbound on rt5. But if the bus was traveling south bound then he just as well could have been making a left, crossing the north bound lane and the bike ran into him. The lights out there aren’t very bright and I could see how the motorcycle driver wouldn’t have seen the bus as he rounded the blind turn.

I know the bus driver and he's a good man. Witnesses said that he came to a full stop before proceeding to make his turn. The motorcycly came out of nowhere at a very high rate of speed. My prayers go out to both families, this is an awful situation.

My prayers go out to the family for their lost.
This particular intersection is very dangerous on Leonardtown Road. I was also involved in an accident at the same location last year. When is there going to be something done to help prevent accidents?

Regarding commuter buses in general, I've ridden the Keller buses from Waldorf and found that some of those drivers are abominable, pusy, tailgaters that seem to get a kick out of puching cars down the road. Other drivers are very good, however, and could be the model for how bus drivers should behave. It's a toss up. Try one bus driver a day for a week and you may find a safe one.
I'd also like to point out the quite often, bus drivers will use the shoulder to pass slow moving traffic - something that only Emergency vehicles should do. Then again, lots of car drivers pass a bus and then take position in front of it while slowing dramatically... As to Waldorf drivers in general, bus, car, motorcycle, you name it - VERY Few actually stop at Stop signs, VERY Few use turn signals, and too many play with cell phones while drinking and adjusting their beer can hats.

I was wondering if you witnessed the accident and saw the article in the paper on August 8th that reads:
State police seekwitnesses to fatal accident
The Maryland State Police La Plata barrack is seeking witnesses of a fatal accident between a motorcycle and charter bus.
The collision occurred on northbound Route 5 at Gallant Green Road at about 6:34 p.m. July 21. Anyone who witnessed the collision between a blue motorcycle and a Keller charter bus, or any of either vehicles’ movements before the collision is asked to call the Maryland State Police CRASH Team at
