Three people died and several others were hospitalized in accidents in Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Cecil counties.

Baltimore County police are looking for a full-size, dark pickup truck that fatally struck a pedestrian just after 2 a.m. yesterday in the 7400 block of Belair Road near Fullerton Avenue.

The victim, Paul Michael Hammond, 38, of the 7400 block of Linden Ave. near Overlea was hit by the northbound vehicle, then walked into the southbound lane of Belair Road and collapsed, Baltimore County police said. He was pronounced dead at 2:51 a.m. at Franklin Square Hospital.

County police asked that anyone with information call 887-2198.

Police said speed and alcohol were factors in an accident in Baltimore County Friday night in which a 22-year-old Reisterstown man was killed.

Police said a 1993 Maxima was eastbound on Worthington Avenue near Butler Road at 9:30 p.m., when the driver attempted to pass another vehicle and lost control on a curve.

The Maxima spun around and struck a tree. The rear-seat passenger, Christopher George, of the 13200 block of Old Hanover Road, was killed. Police said he was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver, David Lieu, 21, of the 300 block of Sacred Heart Lane, Reisterstown, was in critical condition, and the front-seat passenger, Adam Kautz, 22, of the 100 block of Park Drive, Catonsville, was in fair condition yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

In Anne Arundel County, a Millersville man was killed yesterday morning after he drove the wrong way on fog-shrouded Interstate 97 and struck another vehicle.

Police said Scott Elliott Sabean, 29, of the 400 block of Hila Drive, was driving south in the northbound left lane at 4:45 a.m., when his 1982 Chevrolet Cavalier struck a 1983 Ford LTD.

Mr. Sabean was dead on arrival at North Arundel General Hospital.

The driver of the other car, Michael Johnston Baldea, 39, of the 1100 block of Old Lovepoint Road, Stevensville, was taken by helicopter to Prince George's General Hospital, where he was in serious but stable condition.

Investigators are trying to determine how Mr. Sabean got on the highway in the wrong direction.

Fog was listed as the cause of a serious two-vehicle accident at about 7:15 a.m. yesterday near North East in Cecil County.

A 1977 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by August Daniel Ulrich Jr., 73, of Conowingo, had stopped to make a left turn from Route 272 onto Warburton Road.

It was struck from behind by a 1983 Ford pickup driven by Gerry Dean Jennings, 30, of Nottingham, Pa., according to state police.

Mr. Jennings and his passenger Richard Wollens, 30, of Colora, were taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware by ambulance, the police said. Mr. Jennings was in the critical care unit. No conditions were available.

Mr. Ulrich was not injured.
