Fatal scooter accident after Showell Park fireworks show

OCEAN PINES — Ocean Pines Police are still unsure what
caused a Brooklyn Park, Md. man to steer his scooter from Ocean Parkway and
into a tree on July 4.

Around 9:18 p.m., a motor scooter operated by David Allan
Biggs, 50, left the roadway at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Breezeway
Lane, and collided with a tree in the center median. Biggs, who was not wearing
a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.

No other vehicles, nor persons, were involved in the

Traffic was blocked in both directions as rescue personnel
cleared debris, causing irregular backups as citizens leaving Showell Park
following an Independence Day fireworks display returned to homes in Ocean

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Department is currently
assisting the Ocean Pines Police Department in the investigation.
