A Glen Burnie man is dead and a Prince George’s County woman is injured after a crash on Route 100 in Glen Burnie on Saturday afternoon, county officials said.
Anne Arundel police wrote in a release that Paul Pinkston, 36, died after his 2006 Scion flipped and landed on another vehicle.
Officers were first called to the scene of a two-vehicle crash in the area of Route 100 East and Quarterfield Road at 11:43 a.m., the department wrote.
Pinkston was driving his car eastbound when he lost control and struck the guardrail, police wrote, which caused his vehicle to flip onto a 2017 Honda Civic also traveling on Route 100.
Pinkston was declared dead at the scene while Diana Ventura, the 22-year-old driver in the Civic, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
A 1-year-old child in Ventura’s vehicle was uninjured in the crash, police said.
Investigators believe Pinkston to be at fault for the crash, as police wrote, “The preliminary cause of the crash appears to be (Pinkston) failing to remain in a single lane.” The department added that “speed does appear to have contributed to the crash.”
Lt. Erik Kornmeyer, spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, said Route 100 eastbound was closed at Interstate 97 for “extended extrication” and while police continued their investigation. As of around 4:45 p.m., Route 100 had reopened.
Firefighters from the BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Fire Department assisted, the department said.
