An Abingdon man was killed when he crashed his car in the Edgewood area on Saturday evening.
The victim was identified by the Harford County Sheriff's Office as Daniel Kolb, 39, of the 3600 block of Woodsdale Road in Abingdon.
Mr. Kolb was involved in a single vehicle accident on Winters Run Road near Fashion Way at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.
According to deputies, the preliminary investigation showed Mr. Kolb was traveling south in a Mitsubishi Eclipse when he failed to navigate a turn in the road.
The car struck an embankment, causing the vehicle to flip over onto its roof. Emergency responders from Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company responded and pronounced the driver dead at the scene, the Sheriff's Office news release states. No other occupants were in the car.
Because of the dense wooded area on both sides of the road, and no witnesses, the fire company's 100-foot aerial ladder was raised to search for any other potential victims, a Joppa Magnolia Fire company news release states. A thorough search using an infrared camera was conducted and no one else was found.
Winters Run Road was closed from Singer Road to Fashion Way for most of Saturday evening, a Sheriff's Office spokesperson said.
The death was the second fatality on Harford County roads in a week, after an Aberdeen man died in Creswell on July 22. It was the third in July and the 13th in the county this year.
Mr. Kolb, who was born in Baltimore, graduated from Bel Air High School in 1992, according to an obituary from McComas Funeral Home.
He worked at Mr. Tire in the Festival at Bel Air shopping center, was an avid Ravens fan, enjoyed fishing, spending time with his two sons and making artwork out of old tools and metal pieces, according to family members.
His funeral service at McComas Funeral Home in Abingdon will begin at 8 p.m. Wednesday with visitation earlier the same day.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
