Police: 21-year-old from Queen Anne's County was killed in a crash on the Bay Bridge early Saturday morning.

A 21-year-old man from Queen Anne's County was killed in a crash on the Bay Bridge early Saturday, police said.

A 2011 Mazda sedan and a 2014 Freightliner box truck collided on the eastbound side of the Bay Bridge in Queen Anne's County at 2:22 a.m. Saturday, according to 1st Sgt. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority police.

Two men and two women, all over 18, were inside the Mazda, he said.

One of them, Randy Drake Thrower, 21, of Queenstown, was pronounced dead at the scene, Green said. A woman with serious injuries was flown by state police helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. She was in stable condition, Green said.

Two others were driven by ambulance to Anne Arundel Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the box truck was not injured.

Green did not identify the others or say who was driving the Mazda.

He said alcohol, drugs and excessive speed were all factors in the crash.

Green said there was heavy damage to the front of Mazda and the rear of the box truck.

Eastbound lanes reopened just before 7 a.m., he said.
