A 23-year-old Baltimore man died Friday morning after he was thrown from his vehicle in a crash on the Jones Falls Expressway, his body flung beyond the jersey wall near the Pepsi sign off the highway, authorities said.

Baltimore police identified the man as Duvall D'Arnvae Stokes; his last known address was in the 500 block of Lyndhurst St., in the city's Allendale neighborhood.


Stokes' family could not immediately be reached for comment.

The crash occurred about 7 a.m. Few details about the accident were available, though a witness said he saw the man's pickup truck lose a back wheel before the accident.

Police said there were no other injuries. All lanes of southbound Interstate 83 had reopened by 9:40 a.m., city transportation officials said, after all lanes were initially closed near Cold Spring Lane for the investigation. The incident caused large rush-hour backups on the JFX and on alternate routes.

On Friday afternoon, a two-car crash near M&T Bank Stadium injured three people, including a child, according to city police and fire officials.

The accident occurred at Russell and West streets.

Police and fire officials provided no information about the severity of the victims' injuries, but Sgt. Jarron Jackson, a police spokesman, described the accident as "serious."

One adult was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, while the child was taken to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, said Ian Brennan, a Baltimore Fire Department spokesman.

A second adult was also taken to a hospital, Brennan said, though he didn't know which one.

Rescue personnel were dispatched to that scene at 4:35 p.m., a fire dispatcher said.
