He said Morozov was turning east onto Fairway from northbound Park Heights when he lost control of the car and hit the tree on the driver's side.

About 6 p.m. Saturday, two people were killed when a Chevrolet Beretta crashed into a light pole, then a utility pole in the 2300 block of Garrison Blvd. at Gwynns Falls Parkway, said Agent Ragina L. Cooper, a city police spokeswoman.
