Driver killed when car hits parked auto, concrete wall; Glen Burnie man dies at scene; passenger hurt


A Glen Burnie man was killed early yesterday when his car slammed into a parked car and a concrete wall, Anne Arundel County police said.

Gregorio Legorreta Olvera, 32, of the 6900 block of Glen Ridge Road, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His passenger, Gerardo Hernandez Ocampo, 23, of the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane in Glen Burnie, was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he is in serious condition with injuries to both legs, police said.

Olvera was traveling north on Furnace Branch Road about 2 a.m. when his Ford Taurus ran into a parked Chevrolet Cavalier. The Cavalier, owned by Joyce Fay Wright of the 4700 block of Cleveland Lane at Andrews Air Force Base, was parked in the 400 block of Furnace Branch Road.

Olvera continued to drive north on Furnace Branch Road and slammed head-on into a concrete wall and embankment near Glenwood Avenue.

Alcohol and excessive speed were believed to be factors in the crash, police said.
