A 19-year-old Catonsville man was killed and seven people were injured early yesterday in a three-vehicle accident in Milford Mill - the third fatal crash since late July on the same stretch of Liberty Road west of the Beltway.
Killed was Devron David Fuller of the 1200 block of Martin Court. Police said Fuller, whose 1995 Lexus was traveling east at a high rate of speed on Liberty shortly past 2 a.m., used the center turn lane near Washington Avenue in an attempt to pass an eastbound 1996 Acura.
Fuller's car hit the Acura, spun sideways and collided with a westbound 2002 Honda sport utility vehicle, police said.
Fuller was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
In a preliminary report on the crash, police did not identify the other drivers and named only one of the seven people who were injured. That victim, identified only as Eddie Young, 18, was listed in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Two other victims also were taken to Shock Trauma, one to University of Maryland Medical Center, two to Sinai Hospital and one to Northwest Hospital Center. None of their injuries appeared to be life-threatening, police said.
Speeding has been a problem on the stretch of Liberty Road, with police saying speed appeared to be a factor in fatalities there July 22 and July 31 - both of them hit-and-run incidents.
A 26-year-old Randallstown man riding a motor scooter was killed on Liberty Road on July 22 when he was hit by a BMW that police said they had clocked at 70 mph in a 40-mph zone just before the crash. The driver accused in the crash surrendered to police Aug. 2.
Police have not reported an arrest in the fatality July 31. They said two drivers may have been speeding before one of them hit the back of a sport utility vehicle, in which a 32-year- old female passenger from Baltimore was killed.
