A collision in Edgewater Tuesday afternoon claimed the life of a 78-year-old man.

Gene Herbert Byrd of the first block of Tarragon Lane in Edgewater died at Anne Arundel Medical Center within a few hours of the 2:53 p.m. crash at Solomons Island Road near Lee Airpark Drive, investigators said Wednesday.

Byrd was making a left turn on the green signal from Lee Airpark Drive when his Volvo station wagon was struck on the driver's side door by a GMC Yukon traveling south on Solomons Island Road, Anne Arundel police said.

The Yukon driver had driven through a red signal, police said. Investigators, who have found no evidence of excessive speed or alcohol, have said driver error may have contributed to the crash.

No charges have been filed.

Edward M. Cramer, 27, of Lothian, the driver of the Yukon, was not injured
