A 64-year-old New Windsor man was killed Thursday when he collided with a Mack truck towing a trailer on Route 27 in Taylorsville, Maryland State Police said.

State troopers said Edmund Riemer Jr. of the 2200 block of Doctor Stitely Road was headed north on Route 27 around 2 p.m. when he lost control of his 1999 Chevrolet Malibu, veering into the southbound lanes. A 1997 Mack truck, driven by 50-year-old Dennis Charles Whittington, was traveling south on Route 27, towing a 2004 Great Dane trailer, according to authorities. Whittington, of the 800 block of Dewey Ave. in Hagerstown, slowed and moved to the shoulder, but was unable to avoid a collision.

Police said the truck struck the passenger side of the Chevrolet, and Riemer died from injuries he received in the collision. The accident remains under investigation.
