Anne Arundel County Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred early Saturday morning.

Officers responded around 2:28 a.m. to MD Route 3, Crain Highway, and Wellfleet Lane for a reported two vehicle crash.

Police say a dodge Charge was traveling northbound on Crain Highway when a Nissan Altima attempted to cross Route 3 northbound and was struck.

The impact pushed the Altima into a tree and pole.

The driver of the Charger, Reginald Dunn, was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma with serious injuries. 

The two occupants of the Altima, Jasmine Mastin and Marcus Spriggs, were declared dead at the scene and were taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for autopsy.

Police say they believe alcohol and speed were contributing factors used by the driver of the Charger.

This incident is still under investigation.
