A Baltimore man was killed early today when the car he was driving ran under a tractor-trailer in a southbound lane of Interstate 83 in Timonium, said State Police at the Golden Ring barracks.
The victim was Robert C. Brandt, 31, of the 3900 block of Woodlea Ave., the police said.
A spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Fire Department said Brandt's car slammed into the rear of the tractor-trailer while both vehicles were traveling south between Timonium Road and the Beltway shortly after 4:30 a.m.
Rescue units from the Texas fire station responded and firefighters had to use cutting tools to free Brandt from the wrecked car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The truck driver was not injured.
