BALTIMORE — Maryland State Police are investigating the cause of a deadly crash in Baltimore County on Saturday.

At 2:30 a.m., troopers from the JFK Memorial Highway Barrack responded to Interstate 95 South at Chesaco Avenue for a report of a two-vehicle crash.

According to investigators, a 2019 Nissan Altima was possibly disabled in lane three when a tractor-trailer rear-ended it.

The other passenger, a 28-year-old man, was transported to the Shock Trauma Center for treatment. The driver and the passenger of the tractor-trailer declined medical treatment at the scene.
