A postal worker was killed while delivering mail when his vehicle and a pick-up truck crashed in the 3100 block of Monkton Road, Baltimore County police said.
The worker was identified as Bruce Robert Deutser, 62, of the 17400 block of Bushland Road in Parkton.
Officers arrived at the collision, near the St. James Academy in Monkton, just after 11:30 a.m. Saturday. Deutser was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Police said Deutser was slowing down to make a left turn when a black Dodge pick-up truck driven by a 53-year-old man from Delaware tried to pass him on the left side. The pick-up hit the left corner of the mail vehicle, causing it to roll over and ejecting Deutser into the roadway.
The pick-up driver remained at the scene, police said. The county state's attorney's office will review the case when the police crash team finishes its investigation.
