Police have identified the man who was killed Wednesday afternoon when he drove a truck into a tree in Pasadena.

Brian L. McNutt, 50, of the 200 block of Stiemly Avenue in Glen Burnie, lost control of a truck he had borrowed, hit an embankment and then hit a tree, Maryland State Police said in a statement Thursday.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

About 4:30 p.m., a state trooper from the Glen Burnie Barrack saw McNutt in a blue 1998 Dodge Dakota truck swerving within a lane on Route 10 near Route 648, police said.

The vehicle was going 82 mph in a 55 mph zone and, shortly after, the truck spun around, police said.

The trooper attempted to pull the truck over, but McNutt sped away and took eastbound Route 100, passing cars on the left by driving in the median, police said.

McNutt's driver's license had been revoked in Maryland since at least 2008, police said.

The reason for McNutt's erratic driving is still being investigated, police said, and forensic and toxicology tests are being conducted by the medical examiner's office.
