Richard Cager, of Severn, died at the hospital as a result of his injuries on Nov. 7.

On October 29, a 2004 Chevrolet Tracker driven by Cager was traveling westbound on Little Patuxent Parkway approaching Cedar Lane when it was hit by a 2019 Chrysler 300 traveling northbound on Cedar Lane through the intersection.
