A Silver Spring man died of internal injuries Saturday evening after he drove his car into the path of another car in Laurel, county police said.

Louis Emile Murray, 77, of the 9300 block of Greyrock Road died about 8: 45 p.m. Saturday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center of internal bleeding, police said. Police said Anthony Steven Harris, 32, of the 9600 block of Canterbury Riding in Laurel, driver of the other vehicle, was treated for bruises at Laurel Regional Hospital and released.

Police said Murray was trying to enter Whiskey Bottom Road from Laurel Race Course in a 1996 Cadillac Seville about 5: 15 p.m. Saturday and drove into the path of Harris' eastbound 1991 Honda Accord. The Cadillac was struck on the driver's side, police said.

Police said Murray complained of shortness of breath and was taken to Laurel Regional Hospital. He was transferred to Shock Trauma, where he began bleeding internally and died, police said.

Fire officials are investigating a Saturday morning fire in a Brooklyn Park rowhouse basement that they believe was arson.

Battalion Chief John Scholz said Donna Throckmonton, 27, one of three occupants of house at the 900 block of First St., was treated for smoke inhalation. Nancy Lowry, 50, and Robert Taylor, 48, refused treatment, he said.
