Heart attack may be cause of crash that killed man, 80

An 80-year-old man died Sunday morning after police say he suffered a suspected heart attack while driving and hit a stop sign and planter at King George and Randall streets in Annapolis about 8:20 a.m.

Officers said the man, whose name had not been released by police, was pronounced dead at a hospital. The accident was not severe enough to cause fatal injuries, police said, and preliminary indications reveal that the man may have died from a heart attack.

Jessup man, 23, killed in car accident Saturday

A Jessup man was killed after his vehicle drove off Wigley Avenue at a high speed and hit a concrete abutment Saturday evening, police said.

Eric J. Sellner, 23, was driving north on Wigley Avenue at 7 p.m. and lost control of his Honda Civic as he approached Montevideo Road. The car spun into a drainage ditch along the road and overturned before it struck the concrete abutment of a small bridge that spans the ditch. The car overturned once more before stopping just north of the bridge.

Sellner was declared dead at the scene. The impact of the crash was so severe that the engine was forced through the bottom of the car and found about 50 feet from the vehicle.

Affordable housing is topic of panel meeting tomorrow

Anne Arundel County's Workforce Housing Initiative Task Force - convened by County Executive Janet S. Owens - will meet for the first time tomorrow.

The group, which will be headed by building industry consultant and Owens supporter Brenda Desjardins, was organized to suggest ways to help police officers, firefighters and teachers buy homes in the county, where real estate values have skyrocketed in recent years.

The task force - which is made up of representatives of the housing, real estate, development and financial industries - will meet at 4:30 p.m. on the fourth floor of Arundel Center, 44 Calvert St., Annapolis. The group will submit a final report to Owens by July 1.

County Councilwoman Barbara D. Samorajczyk, a Democrat from Annapolis, has launched a parallel effort to solve the county's work-force housing shortage. That group met last week.
