Driver still unknown in crash that killed man in November

February 12, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Anne Arundel County police said yesterday that they are still trying to determine which of two men was driving a van involved in a fatal accident in Glen Burnie in November.

Sebastian David Patterson, 32, of Rosedale died Nov. 21 when the 2001 Chevrolet van that he and Gregory Ross Lines, 41, were in struck the rear of a 1999 Ford Explorer on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, careened through a fence and turned over several times, police said. Both of the van's occupants were ejected, and Lines survived the crash.

Lines has not been cooperating with the investigation, so police have not determined who was driving the van.

Witnesses who have recently come forward said they saw the van about 45 minutes before the accident Nov. 21, police said. The witness statements have caused police to re-examine who they believe was driving the van at the time of the crash.

The Explorer had stopped to make a left turn from Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard onto Glen Road, police said. Neither its driver, Marc Anthony Dilonardo, 41, of Glen Burnie nor two children in the vehicle were seriously injured, police said.

Patterson was pronounced dead at the scene, and Lines was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. He has since been released.

Police said speed and alcohol use are believed to have contributed to the crash. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Police Department's traffic safety section at 410-222-8573.
