On May 20, 2017 just before 4:30 p.m., Baltimore County Police responded to a crash at Falls Road near Brick Store Road. Investigators determined that an Acura RDX was traveling northbound on Falls Road when the car left the roadway, struck a fence, then rolled several times. The driver was the only occupant inside the car. Mr. Jehu Cortez-Rogel, 31 was pronounced deceased at the scene by Baltimore County Fire Department personnel.

One person has died following a two-vehicle crash Thursday on Martin Boulevard at Kelso Drive.

Ronald Kevin Parris III, 23, was transported to Franklin Square Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Team was called to the scene at 4:22 p.m. The preliminary investigation shows that the crash involved a collision between a Hyundai Sonata and Ford F-450 truck.

Parris was a passenger in the Hyundai. The 25 year-old driver of the car and a four- year-old child were transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital with serious injuries. The three people in the Ford truck at the time of the crash were uninjured and remained at the crash scene.

The Baltimore County Crash Team continues to investigate the crash.
