A man was arrested after driving into a fence near Baltimore Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport on Sunday morning.
Around 8:40 a.m., a sprinter van driven by a man identified as John Mack Jr., 37, of Baltimore, was traveling on Stoney Run Road when it ran off the road and crashed into a secured fence near Northrup Grumman's campus, Maryland Transportation Authority police said.
After hitting the fence, the man backed up the van and continued driving on Aviation Boulevard toward Dorsey Road, police said. But it had a flat tire from the earlier crash, and the sparks it was shooting off caused the van to catch fire, police said.
The man left the van after it caught fire and was arrested and was charged with a DUI and other charges, police said. Court records were not yet available online and the man could not be reached for comment.
