A Severna Park resident was killed Wednesday morning after his car collided with a dump truck that left a work site and blocked lanes on Interstate 695, according to Maryland State Police.
Police said the dump truck’s driver, Nathaniel Patrick Ingram, 33, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. The dump truck was loaded with material from the work site at the closed-off exit ramp to Route 2, police said.
Anthony Filardo, 33, of Severna Park was declared dead shortly after midnight Wednesday at the scene of the crash, where his car was rolled onto its side after striking the rear tires of the dump truck that was nearly perpendicular to the travel lanes of the outer loop of Interstate 695, police said in charging papers.
Crash investigators determined that the dump truck had traveled the wrong way up the exit ramp and was unable to complete a right turn onto the beltway, police said. The truck had backed up to turn and was blocking travel lanes when Filardo’s 2014 Lexus crashed into the rear of the dump truck, coming to a rest against the median, police said.
Troopers from the Glen Burnie Barrack responded to the incident just after midnight Wednesday. The outer loop of the beltway was closed for five hours.
Ingram failed field sobriety tests, police said, adding that he blew a 0.11 blood alcohol concentration. The legal limit for driving under the influence in Maryland is 0.08 BAC.
