A 19-year-old man and his dog were killed in a crash on Dolfield Boulevard in Owings Mills late last night.

The preliminary investigation indicates that a Honda Accord traveling southbound on Dolfield Boulevard around 10:34 p.m. struck a Hyundai Elantra that was turning left onto Mill Centre Drive from the northbound lane of Dolfield Boulevard. The Hyundai was then pushed into a light pole. The driver of the Hyundai was pronounced deceased at the scene. A black labrador that was inside the  Hyundai was ejected from the vehicle during the crash and also died at the scene.  The driver of the Honda, an 18-year-old man, was transported to an area hospital in serious condition.

The driver of the Hyundai is identified as Zachary Pierce Friedlander of the unit block of Bridle Court, 21136.
