A man died following a two-vehicle accident Monday night on Robert Fulton Drive in Columbia, according to the Howard County police department.

The driver of a 1985 Mercedes was attempting to make a left turn onto Commerce Center Drive from Robert Fulton Drive at approximately 9:45 p.m. and turned in front of a 2008 Toyota 4 Runner, officials said.

The driver of the Mercedes was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he later died, officials said. His identity is being withheld, pending notification of next of kin.

The driver of the Toyota – Holli Michele Broerman, 38, of Pasadena – was taken to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, where she was treated and released, officials said.

Robert Fulton Drive was closed to traffic until midnight as part of the investigation, but it is now open, officials said. The preliminary investigation lists failure to yield right of way on the part of the Mercedes driver as the primary cause of the accident, according to officials.
