Police say the crash happened after a motorist, who was driving eastbound on Baltimore National Pike in a 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe, tried to turn right onto the highway in the path of a 2020 Nissan. In an effort to avoid a collision, both drivers swerved. The Nissan hit two other cars, and the Chevrolet struck one other, before spinning into the Nissan, which struck a utility pole.
