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.

Police were called to the scene of a single vehicle crash on Southwestern Boulevard around 5:44 p.m. last night. The preliminary investigation reveals that a 2010 Nissan Armada was southbound on Southwestern Boulevard approaching the ramp to westbound I-695 when it missed the ramp and collided with a concrete bridge pier of the I-695 overpass.

The driver and front seat passenger were transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries and remain in critical condition at the time of this posting.

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.
