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.

The driver of the Jeep was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. He has been identified as Joseph Riley Armstead, III, 24 years old, of the 5800-block of Glenkirk Court, 21239. The driver of the street sweeper was not injured according to the initial police report.

The police department's investigation will continue but no further details at this time.
