Baltimore County Police are investigating a fatal crash which occurred early this morning. Just after 1:30 a.m., police were dispatched to a crash on Pulaski Highway and the entrance to the Best Buy store, near Rossville Boulevard.

Crash investigators determined that a 2011 Jeep Patriot was traveling eastbound on Pulaski Highway when the vehicle struck the rear of a 2007 Isuzu street sweeper. The street sweeper was stopped at the red light in front of the store entrance, on Pulaski Highway. After the first collision, the Jeep continued over the curb and struck a traffic signal support pole near the intersection.
