48 year old Stanton Sylvester Miller Jr was traveling north on the shoulder of Ridge Road at 7pm on Friday evening when he was hit from behind by a Chevy Tahoe driven by Quinzy Reginald Fraser, 34 of Clarskburg. Miller was struck at high speed and landed 40-50 feet away against a fence. He was taken to Suburban Hospital, where he died from his injuries.
The driver remained on the scene and provided information to police. The police smelled alcohol on Fraser's breath and when asked he refused to take a breathalizer test. When doctors tried to take a blood sample, he assaulted the officer and resisted arrest.
The driver has a previous DUI on his record.
In addition to pending charges on killing the bicyclist and another possible DUI, Quinzy Reginald Fraser is being held on $200,000 bond charged with resisting arrest and attempted assault on a police officer.
He provided a blood sample for analysis. The results have not been released.
Anyone who may have information about this collision is asked to contact detectives at 301-840-2435.
About Stan Miller
Dorian Janney says, "I can't believe he's not coming home. It hasn't sunk in. I've gone to his room, touched his things, I'm feeling sad...sad for those left behind. We're going to miss him."
Miller rented the basement from Janney's home. She was more than his landlord. They treated each other like family.
The avid biker, who just celebrated a birthday last week, would sometimes spend weeks at a time in Central America.
