Original Release (August 10, 2017 12:07 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police Crash Investigators continue to investigate a single-vehicle crash in Dundalk that left one person dead early this morning.

The preliminary investigation indicates that a Ford truck was traveling southbound on Dundalk Avenue around 4:08 a.m. when it struck a median curb near Sollers Point Road, overturned, and caught fire. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for autopsy.

Baltimore County Crash Team investigators believe that alcohol may have been a factor in a crash in Halethorpe last night that left one man dead.

The rear seat passenger, identified as Aleksandr Nizhnikov (45) of the 3100 block of Old Post Drive in Pikesville, 21208, was transported to St. Agnes Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

Crash Team investigators continue to work to determine all factors that may have contributed to this crash.
