According to The Baltimore Sun, a Pasadena man has officially been charged with negligent manslaughter with an automobile for his role in the death of another driver in November, 2011. Police reports indicate the 25-year-old was driving westbound on Route 100 in Glen Burnie at approximately 7:10 p.m. on November 28 when he proceeded to cut off several drivers. The man struck the back left side of a Ford F-150 with his 2005 BMW, then hit the back of the 66-year-old victim’s Nissan Sentra. The Sentra driver, a resident of Fort Washington, was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment, but tragically died later as a result of his injuries.
In addition to the charges of negligent manslaughter and reckless driving, the Pasadena man also faces a slew of other Maryland criminal charges, including negligent driving, unsafe lane changing, driving vehicle on highway at speed exceeding limit, and following a vehicle too closely. According to online court records, the man was charged with a number of vehicular offenses for an unrelated crash that happened two months after this fatal accident, including driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). The 25-year-old’s arraignment is scheduled for March 19, with a trial set for June 28 in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.
