UPDATE (March 15, 2020 9:15 p.m.):

Investigators have identified the man killed in a single-vehicle crash on Falls Road early this morning as Millard Marvin Sanders Jr (53) of the 1500 block of Undercliff Avenue in Bronx, New York. Sanders was reported missing from his home on February 22 and reportedly had a medical condition that may have caused him to behave erratically. 

Original Release (March 15, 2020 4:40 p.m.):

Police are investigating after a stolen vehicle crashed on Falls Road this morning, killing the driver.

The preliminary investigation determined that the vehicle, a Honda Accord, was being driven north on Falls Road north of Padonia Road just before 7 a.m. when the driver lost control and left the roadway on the right shoulder. The Honda struck a utility pole and overturned, ejecting the driver from the vehicle. Investigators believe that speed may be a factor in this crash and do not believe the driver was wearing a safety belt.

The vehicle was reported stolen out of Baltimore City this morning. Investigators have not yet identified the driver killed in the crash. The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to work to identify the driver and further the investigation into the factors that contributed to this crash.

A 98-year-old woman died in last night's house fire in Cockeysville.

The victim has been identified by Baltimore County Police as Wanda Mary Shattuck of the 800 block of West Padonia Rd., 21030, where the fire occurred.

Fire units were dispatched at 11:35 p.m. for a dwelling fire that was fully involved when the first engine (Engine 503, Chestnut Ridge VFC) arrived. Neighbors reported that an elderly woman was inside the home. 

Fire crews entered the house, a single-story rancher, and located the victim. She was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

This was an aggressive fire exacerbated by high winds. At 11:52 p.m., Fire commanders evacuated all fire personnel from the structure due to unsafe and deteriorating conditions. From that point, fire crews used defensive operations to fight the fire. The fire, which destroyed the home, was knocked down at 12:46 a.m.

Baltimore County Police fire investigators continue to investigate the cause of this fire.

This one-alarm fire required additional apparatus, including a tanker strike team to provide additional water. About 30 pieces of equipment responded.
