Laurel man, 43, charged in fatal car accident


A 43-year-old Laurel man accused of running a red light and causing a car crash that killed an Ellicott City businessman last year has been indicted on a manslaughter charge.

A Howard County grand jury returned a single-count indictment for negligent manslaughter last week against Robert Ice, of the 300 block of Brock Bridge Road. Ice was arrested Tuesday and released after posting $25,000 bond. The indictment was unsealed after his arrest.

Prosecutors allege that Ice, who was westbound on Route 175 on Sept. 10, ran a red light at Route 108 and hit a car driven by Kenneth Weaver Parker, 44, who had a green arrow to turn left from Route 108 onto eastbound Route 175.

Parker, president of a computer consulting firm, died five days later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Ice is scheduled to be arraigned on the charge May 31.
