One Dead in Rt. 50 Crash
From the Capital Gazette:
Maryland State Police have identified the man who died in a fiery crash on Route 50 Sunday morning as Kenneth Earl Pettigrew of Silver Spring.
The crash occurred at about 2:30 a.m. on westbound Route 50 at Route 424 in Davidsonville.
When Anne Arundel County firefighters arrived at the scene they found Pettigrew's 2002 Acura RL on fire and Pettigrew trapped inside.
The Acura had run into the back of a tractor-trailer, police said, then exited the roadway, hit a concrete barrier and caught fire.
Pettigrew sustained burns to his entire body and was pronounced dead at the scene, said county firefighter paramedic Eric Hammack said. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
No additional information was available early Sunday afternoon. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
