ANNAPOLIS, Md. — One person is dead and two others have been injured in a Tuesday night crash, according to Maryland State Police.

At around 9:15 p.m., troopers from the Annapolis barrack responded to a single vehicle crash on the ramp for eastbound US Route 50 to northbound I-97 in Annapolis.

Upon their arrival, troopers observed three victims: 27-year-old Saul A. Mejia, of Annapolis, who was pronounced dead at the scene; and 26-year-old Allen J. Mendez and 21-year-old Carlos I. Yesca, both of Annapolis, were both flown to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for treatment of their injuries.

According to the preliminary investigation, a red Nissan Sentra traveled off the ramp and overturned, ejecting and killing Mejia.

The cause and contributing factors in the crash, as well as the positive identification of all occupants, remains under investigation.
