UPDATE (12:14 p.m.)—Anne Arundel County police said a Pasadena man was killed in a two-car crash on Fort Smallwood Road near Devere Drive early Saturday morning.
Police said Brian David McDevitt, 32, of the 7700 block of Tick Neck Road was thrown from his car during the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.
County police Lt. John McAndrew said evidence at the scene led them to believe excessive speed and alcohol on the part of McDevitt were factors in the crash. He said any further information is pending confirmation of toxicology reports from the coroner's office.
Two other men, 18 and 19, suffered minor injuries in the crash and were taken by ambulance to Baltimore Washington Medical Center. They were in a 1997 BMW 528i.
Police said Brandon Patrick O’Malley, 18, of the 2900 block of Golden Fleece Drive in Pasadena was the driver of the BMW.
Spencer Anthony Blake, 19, of the 7800 block of Leonardo Court in Pasadena was a passenger in the front seat, according to the report.
Officers responded to a call at about 12:45 a.m. and said they found McDevitt’s Acura several hundred feet away from the BMW. It was off the road and on its roof.
Police said the Acura was traveling north on Fort Smallwood Road when it went out of control and began to rotate counterclockwise crossing the double yellow lane lines into the path of the BMW.
The right rear of McDevitt’s Acura hit the front of the BMW. The Acura continued for several hundred feet through a mailbox and off the roadway where it overturned, ejecting the driver and coming to rest on its roof, according to the report.
