A Dundalk man was killed last night when he stepped out onto Trappe Road and was struck by a truck.

The preliminary investigation reveals that at approximately 9:18 p.m. a 1994 Ford F-150, traveling north on Trappe Road near North Point Road, struck a pedestrian who stepped out into the travel portion of the roadway.

The pedestrian, identified as 61-year-old Eugene Paul Kozdras of the 3000 block of Wallford Drive in Dundalk, was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. The driver of the truck remained at the scene.

Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to investigate this crash.

At 10:59 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the 6800 block of Bellona Avenue in Govans for a report of a pedestrian that had been struck by a car.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that a Honda Accord was parked on the north-bound side of the 6800 block of Bellona Avenue. An adult male had just gotten into the car and was about to drive away. A Toyota Camry was traveling north-bound in the 6800 block of Bellona Avenue. The Camry struck the Accord in the rear driver’s side. The impact drove the Accord into an unoccupied golf cart which then struck a female pedestrian. After colliding with the Accord, the Camry swerved to the left, then swerved back right, went up on a curb, struck a utility pole, and came to rest next to a tree.

The 45-year-old female pedestrian was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by medic for treatment of serious injuries. The 33-year-old male driver of the Accord and the 30-year-old female driver of the Camry were transported by medic to St Josephs Hospital with minor injuries.

This incident is under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crash Team.
