TOWSON, Md. — Baltimore County Police are investigating three deadly crashes that happened within two hours on Friday night.

The first occurred on White Marsh Boulevard, just before 10pm.

Police say 35-year-old Tyler Graham was driving a Nissan Sentra the wrong way, when it collided head-on with an oncoming Nissan Titan.

Graham died on scene. The driver of the Nissan Titan is expected to survive.

Shortly after that, two pickup trucks collided causing one to flip into a field off Butler Road.

Investigators believe 31-year-old Robert Leister lost control of his GMC Sierra which caused it to strike a Dodge Ram.

Upon impact, Leister’s truck hit a guardrail which led to it sliding off the road and overturning into the field.

Leister died on scene. The driver of the Dodge was unharmed.

The third incident happened just after 11pm in the 12000 block of Philadelphia Road.

Brandon Johns, 33, reportedly lost control of his Harley Davidson motorcycle while trying to navigate a curve near Raphael Road.

The bike left the road and struck an object, leaving Johns dead.

Detectives are still looking into other factors that may have played a role in each crash.
