One killed, one injured in accident
A car went out of control on a rural road in northern Baltimore County yesterday afternoon and crashed into a tree, killing the driver and injuring the lone passenger - both young men, according to county police.
The survivor was taken to York County Hospital in York, Pa., with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Names were being withheld last night, pending notification of family members.
The BMW automobile was northbound on Spooks Hill Road between Armacost and Rayville roads shortly after 4 p.m., traveling at high speed when it left the road, police said.
A male friend of the occupants was driving behind them in a second vehicle, which glanced off the BMW when he failed to brake in time, police said. He was not injured.
