Howard County police believe three men are dead inside of a car after it collided with a tractor-trailer in Elkridge Thursday morning.

According to police spokesperson Sherry Llewellyn, a Chevy Impala was headed northbound on US Route 1 near Meadowridge Road at about 6 a.m. Thursday at what a preliminary report suggests was a “high rate of speed." 

At the same time, a tractor-trailer was driving southbound on Route 1, making a left turn, and the Impala drove into it on the 7500 block of Washington Blvd., according to a preliminary report. Police say the truck driver, a 58-year-old man, was not injured but they believe three men, who have not yet been identified, are dead inside of the Impala.

As of 8:30 a.m., Route 1 was closed in both directions near the scene of the collision.

Yes, speed appears to be the major contributing factor this time. But I travel that stretch of 1 near the flea market almost every morning around 6:30. It's common for semi drivers, too impatient to wait their turn, to turn across lanes without stopping, forcing one or both lanes to an abrupt halt. It's been that way for years and the police need to arrest a few of them to calm things down.
