Investigators are trying to determine if speed caused a motorcycle crash Saturday that killed an Upper Marlboro man.

The Prince George's County Police Department says Jeffrey Shackelford, 34, of Lord Fairfax Court in Upper Marlboro died from injuries suffered in a one-vehicle crash. Police were called about 8:50 p.m. Saturday to the intersection of John Rodgers Boulevard and Lords Landing Road for a crash involving a motorcycle.
