Man charged in fatal crash

A 30-year-old Germantown man has been charged with vehicular manslaughter in a Nov. 19 two-car crash in Clarksville that killed the driver of the other car, police said.

William Scott Marcellino, of the 19100 block of Grotto Lane, was charged Wednesday afternoon in the head-on collision on Route 108 near Hall Shop Road.

Police say Mr. Marcellino was driving a 1987 Dodge truck west on Route 108 at about 8:30 p.m. when he crossed the center line and struck a 1986 Toyota sedan head-on.

The driver of the Toyota, Saleem Alam Shah, 60, of the 100 block of Hillside Road in Catonsville, was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he died six days later, police said.

Police said breath tests showed Mr. Marcellino's blood alcohol level was .11 percent -- above Maryland's legal limit of .10 percent.

Mr. Marcellino was also charged with DWI, reckless and negligent driving, failure to control speed and driving on the left side of a no-passing pavement striping, police said.
