Charges Pending in Tuesday's Belair Road Accident

A traffic accident disrupted traffic for about three hours Tuesday morning between Perry Hall and Kingsville.

A speeding driver caused a serious traffic accident Tuesday morning, Baltimore County police said.

Shortly after 6:20 a.m. on April 24, along Belair Road near Cheryl Avenue, a 32-year-old Kingsville man was speeding while driving a 2004 Dodge Ram northbound in the right lane. It collided with the right corner of a 2004 Toyota Tacoma traveling northbound in the left lane, said Louise Rogers-Feher, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Police Department.

The Dodge Ram then left the road with damaged wheels and struck a support pole, which broke it into several pieces, and rolled over several times. The driver was transported by medevac with serious but non-life threatening injuries to Maryland Shock Trauma, Rogers-Feher stated.

The Toyota Tacoma received only minimal damage and the driver, a male Perry Hall resident, was not seriously injured, Rogers-Feher stated.

Rogers-Feher said charges related to speeding are pending against the driver of the Dodge Ram.

The accident blocked traffic along Belair Road, between Perry Hall and Kingsville, for about three hours.

I had a Dodge Ram pass me in the turning lane, just as I was preparing to enter that turning lane to make my left hand turn onto Kahlston rd one day. He was obviously anoid because I had slowed down and didn't realize I was preparing to turn left. I wonder ifit was the same guy. Sounds like the same type of irradic driving.

This is a very bad section of route 1, if you do the speed limit (50 mph) you just get blown away by other impatient drivers. Police need to do more speed enforcement from Sunshine Ave to Forge Rd,
