April 28, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A passenger was killed and the driver seriously injured when a car slammed into a utility pole after striking another vehicle last night in Southeast Baltimore, city police said.

The accident occurred about 9 p.m. in front of the Fort Holabird Industrial Center when a Honda sedan, westbound in the 6400 block of Holabird Ave. at an apparently high rate of speed, glanced off an eastbound Ford Mustang whose driver was turning left onto Kane Street, said Southeastern District Lt. James Sharpe.

The Honda spun around at least once before slamming head-on into the utility pole, Sharpe said.

A male passenger was pronounced dead at the scene while the driver of the demolished Honda was taken by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The female driver of the Mustang and her male passenger escaped injury, Sharpe said.

Names of the passenger and driver were withheld pending notification of relatives.
