A Baltimore man was killed when the vehicle in which he was riding went out of control on a curve and hit a tree in Glen Burnie late Saturday, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Raul Pelaez, 40, of the first block of S. Poppleton St. was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in the 100 block of Margate Drive, police said. The driver of the 2003 Honda Pilot, Luis Lopez, 27, of the 5700 block of Kennedy St. in Riverdale was reported in serious condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Both men had been using seat belts and speed did not appear to have been a factor, police said, adding that the cause of the crash remained under investigation.
