Derek Colquitt, manager of the Junk Yard Band and a pioneer of Go-Go Music, was among two people who died in a motorcycle crash Sunday.
According to WJLA, Maryland State Police said along with Colquitt, Jeri Lenelle Whorton was also killed when Colquitt crashed his motorcycle into the back of a Dodge Ram. The bike then caught on fire.
While Colquitt died at the scene of the crash, Whorton was airlifted to Prince George’s Hospital where she later died.
Police said speed may have been a factor in the crash.
