Finksburg man, 33, dies after being ejected in crash

April 01, 1996

A Finksburg man was killed early Friday when the 1986 Ford Bronco he was driving was struck broadside by a tractor-trailer, state police said.

Witnesses told state police that the Bronco, driven by Raymond Charles Dannettel III, 33, of the 1500 block of Delaware Court was traveling west on Sandymount Road about 6: 30 a.m. and had stopped for a traffic light at Route 140.

He drove into the intersection and was struck by the northbound tractor-trailer after the light had changed to green, witnesses said.

Mr. Dannettel was ejected onto the median. He was treated at the scene and taken to Carroll County General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, state police said.

The tractor-trailer was driven by Harold Kenneth Musselman, 49, of Littlestown, Pa., police said.

Investigators said they will consult with the Carroll County state's attorney before deciding whether charges will be filed.
