A 58-year-old Randallstown truck driver died Friday morning in a crash that caused his gravel truck to overturn along Route 29 in Columbia, according to Howard County police.
Jerry Melvin Jones, the driver of a 2008 Kenworth dump truck, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police were called to the scene around 8:06 a.m. after the truck collided with a 2019 Chevrolet Malibu turning from Route 29 onto Rivers Edge Road, officials said.
The driver of the Chevrolet Malibu, Lashara Moore, 45, also of Randallstown, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma in critical condition.
One lane of Route 29 southbound has reopened. The northbound lanes are open.
The cause of the collision is under investigation.
