On Friday, August 28 at approximately 6:15 a.m., 2nd District officers and Fire & Rescue personnel responded to the 6000 block of Massachusetts Avenue for the report of a collision involving a vehicle and bicyclist.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a bicyclist, identified as Timothy Aloysius Holden, age 64, of the 5900 block of Carlton Lane in Bethesda, was traveling east in the shoulder area of Massachusetts Avenue.  A Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Ricardo Kenard Freeman, age 22, of the 1600 block of Meadowood Court in Edgewood, was also traveling east.  Detectives are now confirming that the collision occurred in the eastbound shoulder area; the cause of the collision is still under investigation.  Holden was seriously injured and succumbed to his injuries at the scene.  Holden was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
