The investigation is indicating that around 7:15 p.m., a Hyundai Elantra was traveling north-bound on Reisterstown Road approaching Sunset Road.

Neither man was in a crosswalk.

Both men were transported to the hospital where one of them died. The deceased man has been identified as 52-year-old Ricardo McKeever of Reisterstown.

The Elantra remained at the scene.

The investigation into the crash is expected to take several weeks.
