A 74-year-old Essex man died early today from injuries he received when the car he was driving struck the rear of a pickup truck that was stalled in the right lane of the Back River Neck Bridge on Eastern Boulevard.
Baltimore County police said Peter Mancuso, of the 400 block of Riverside Drive, was pronounced dead at the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore at 2:56 a.m. today, about three hours after the accident.
Police said Mancuso was driving east in the right lane when he struck the rear of the pickup truck, which had run out of gas and had on its four-way emergency flashers. The truck driver had gone to get fuel.
Police said the impact of the accident pushed the pickup truck about 250 feet, across the center line, through westbound traffic and into a bridge wall.
