Traffic light out, car struck 2 killed

October 19, 1990

Two elderly people died last night of injuries received when their car was struck broadside at Falls Road and Seminary Avenue near Brooklandville. A traffic light was not working because of the storm that struck the area.

Baltimore County police said Joseph R. McIntosh, 85, of the 2800 block of Houck's Mill Road in Monkton, and Kathleen Ness, 86, of the 13700 block of Falls Road in Monkton, were pronounced dead at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center shortly after the 10:55 p.m. crash.

Police said a 1986 Chevrolet driven by Elizabeth McIntosh, 70, Joseph McIntosh's wife, was northbound on Falls Road when it was struck on the passenger side by a 1988 Mercury Cougar driven by Anthony R. Paszkiewicz, 59, of the 5200 block of King Ave. near White Marsh. Paszkiewicz was westbound on Seminary Avenue and failed to grant the right-of-way to the other car, police said.

A traffic light at the intersection was malfunctioning because of the severe storm that disrupted electrical power, police said.

Traffic charges were pending against Paszkiewicz, police said.
