Sykesville man, 18, is killed in crash near Eldersburg

ELDERSBURG - An 18-year-old Sykesville man was killed yesterday morning in a head-on collision on Route 32 just north of the Morgan Run bridge and Liberty Reservoir.

About 6:30 a.m., state police said, a Chevrolet Camaro northbound on Route 32 crossed the center line and crashed into a delivery truck. The passenger in the Camaro, Nelson William Fincham III of Sykesville, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The Camaro's driver, Rebecca Michelle Varner, 19, of Sykesville, was transported by helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The truck driver, Darrell Lee Howard, 45, of Finksburg, was taken to Sinai Hospital.

Tonight's baseball game affects streets, parking

The city Department of Transportation has announced street closures and parking restrictions for tonight's 8:05 Orioles' opener at Camden Yards.

Beginning at 6 a.m., Eutaw Street will be closed between Camden and Pratt streets. Camden Street will be closed from Howard to Russell streets beginning at 11 a.m., and from Russell to Washington Boulevard beginning at 5 p.m. Also at 5 p.m., Lee Street will be closed from Ramp D to Russell Street, and Hamburg Street will be made one-way eastbound pre-game and one way westbound post-game from Russell to Leadenhall streets.

Posted parking restrictions are in place all day on streets near the ballpark. MTA shuttle buses substituting for the light rail closure south of Camden Yards will be picking up passengers along Camden Street between Howard to Russell streets after the game.

A map showing parking restrictions and street closures appears today on Page 6F of the Opening Night special section.

Households without water may have service today

The 150 East Baltimore households without water since early Thursday may have service restored as early as this morning, a city public works spokesman said last night.

Crews were working last night to install a new pipe at North Avenue and Wolfe Street, where several water mains intersect, said Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for Baltimore's Department of Public Works. A broken 12-inch main left water gushing into the street as city workers delivered jugs of water to people living nearby and opened a fire hydrant for them to fill containers.

Kocher said the intersection would likely be closed for another few days while repairs are made.
