A Pennsylvania man was killed in a single-vehicle accident in Aberdeen Thursday morning, Aberdeen Police said.
Thomas Albert Lockard, 54, of Nottingham, Pa., died after his Nissan Rogue crashed on Route 22, the Aberdeen Thruway, near the Rogers Street exit at about 7 a.m., police said.
Lockard was driving east on Route 22 when his car left the road and struck a tree, police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick said.
No other vehicles were involved and no other injuries were reported.
Police found no evidence of alcohol involved, Budnick said. The investigation is continuing.
Traffic along Route 22, the major route into Aberdeen Proving Ground for employees of the installation, was tied up for several hours following the accident, Budnick said.
The Aberdeen accident was the second highway fatality reported in Harford County Thursday morning.
Earlier, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said a male deputy was killed in a single vehicle accident near Conowingo Dam sometime before 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
The Thursday accident in Aberdeen was the fourth highway fatality in the city limits this year and third along Route 22 between I-95 and APG. In January, a male driver was killed when his vehicle struck a tractor trailer at the Beards Hill Road intersection. In March, a man was killed after he was struck by a car while he walked along westbound Route 22 near Middleton Road.
The other Aberdeen fatality this year occurred in April when a man was struck and killed by a car while killed crossing Route 40.
