FREDERICK COUNTY, Md. (WUSA9) -- The motorcyclist that died after colliding with a car on Monocacy Boulevard was a Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, officials say.

The man was identified as Dion Bagby, 27, of Vienna, Va.

At approximately 9:14 a.m. on Friday, troopers responded to a two vehicle collision between a Jetta and a motorcycle, officials said.

The Jetta was making a left turn across the Northbound lanes of Route 15 and did not see the motorcycle approaching the intersection. The driver of the motorcycle saw the Jetta and began braking, but couldn't stop before striking the passenger side of the car, officials said in a news release.

The Jetta was driven by Amy Harrison of Thurmont, Md. She was not seriously injured but transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons, officials said.

The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Bagby was a cheerleading coach for Infinity All Stars. The Virginia-based cheerleading and dance team says he had also recently tried out for the Baltimore Ravens' co-ed cheerleading squad, made the team and was set to start his first season with the NFL squad this fall. He was originally from Oklahoma.
