Baltimore County Police are investigating an overnight crash that killed one man.

Police responded to the 600 block of Seminary Avenue just after 1 a.m. where a white 2006 Volvo station wagon traveling east on Seminary Avenue near Aintree Road left the roadway and struck several fixed objects, including a tree. Police and medics responded and transported the driver of the Volvo to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. He is identified as Stephen Robert Bogusky, 3rd (18) of the 700 block of Milldam Road in Towson, MD.
