Original Story

Howard County police believe three men are dead after the car they were in collided with a tractor-trailer in Elkridge Thursday morning.

According to police spokesperson Sherry Llewellyn, a Chevy Impala was headed northbound on US Route 1 near Meadowridge Road at about 6 a.m. Thursday at what a preliminary report suggests was a “high rate of speed." 

At the same time, a tractor-trailer was driving southbound on Route 1, making a left turn, and the Impala drove into it on the 7500 block of Washington Blvd., according to a preliminary report. Police say the truck driver, a 58-year-old man, was not injured but they believe three men, who have not yet been identified, are dead inside of the Impala.

As of 8:30 a.m., Route 1 was closed in both directions near the scene of the collision.

Eric, It was on Channel 13 news this morning before 630 am. My husband travels US 1 south from Elkridge to Laurel for work and he knew about it before he left (at 640am). This is a sad story. 3 lives ended because they were in a hurry. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid.
