Man dies as result of two-car crash in Eldersburg

September 22, 2012

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office says a 35-year-old man was killed on Saturday afternoon in a crash at the intersection of Johnsville Road and Piney Ridge Parkway in Eldersburg.

At approximately 1:15 p.m., Sheriff's Office personnel and members of the Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department responded to the accident scene, and medical personnel treated a male victim.

This man, identified as Leif Erik Foerter, 35, had life threatening injuries and was transported to Carroll Hospital Center, where he died.

Investigators said the crash occurred when a Honda Accord traveling west on Piney Ridge Parkway entered into the intersection of Johnsville Road and collided with a northbound Jeep Wrangler. Foerter, who was driving the Jeep, was ejected in the crash, according to the Sheriff's Office report.

The driver of the Honda Accord was transported to Carroll Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The Sheriff's Office said speed is considered to be a factor in the collision, but alcohol is not. Charges are pending.

Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to contact Cpl. Jeff Miller at 410-386-5900
