The Baltimore County Police Department Crash Team is investigating a Wednesday morning crash on Belair Road in Kingsville that left a man deceased.
Just after 9 a.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Belair Road and New Cut Road for a report of a serious crash. When officers arrived on the scene they found that two people had been injured.
The preliminary investigation into the crash has indicated that a Ford Taurus had been traveling north-bound on Belair Road. A Jeep Wrangler had been on south-bound Belair Road and was turning left into a parking lot. The Taurus struck the Wrangler when the Wrangler turned in front of it. After the initial impact, both vehicles continued into a parking lot and struck several unoccupied vehicles.
The driver of the Wrangler was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital for treatment of his injuries. He is expected to survive.
The driver of the Taurus was transported to Franklin Square Hospital where he was later declared deceased. He has been identified as 87-year-old Mario Anthony Silvestri of the 600 block of South Broadway 21231.
When the Crash Team investigation is complete, it will be sent to the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.
