A single vehicle crash on Belair Road yesterday afternoon killed an elderly passenger.

The driver suffered a medical emergency while heading northbound on Belair Road near Silver Spring Road at approximately 2:15 p.m. The vehicle, a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, jumped the curb and struck a BGE pole.

The driver, a 61-year-old-man, was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries and treated for the medical emergency. He is expected to survive. The front passenger, identified as Phyllis Ann Cloud (90) of the unit block of Powhurst Court, 21236, was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where she later died. 

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team responded to the scene and is continuing their investigation into this fatal crash.

This suspect crawled under a tarp covering the 'I Play & Talk' kiosk in Towson Town Center and filled a trash bag with merchandise, then fled. Can you help identify him? He appears to have a large tattoo on the right side of his neck that may help identify him.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes this thief to contact the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward when submitting tips through Metro Crime Stoppers.
