Maryland State Police believe an accident that killed two people yesterday morning in Gambrills was caused by the aggressive behavior of two drivers - one of whom died when he lost control of his car and slammed into two other vehicles. Troopers said they would display a message board this morning at the accident scene, on Route 32 near Interstate 97, urging witnesses to come forward if they have information about the accident, particularly about the second driver. Sgt. Thornnie Rouse, a spokesman for the state police, said speed and unsafe lane changes led to the 6:50 a.m. accident, which tied up traffic for more than three hours.
