A 23-year-old Baltimore man died Friday morning after he was thrown from his vehicle in a crash on the Jones Falls Expressway, his body flung beyond the jersey wall near the Pepsi sign off the highway, authorities said. Baltimore police identified the man as Duvall D'Arnvae Stokes; his last known address was in the 500 block of Lyndhurst St., in the city's Allendale neighborhood. Stokes' family could not immediately be reached for comment. The crash occurred about 7 a.m. Few details about the accident were available, though a witness said he saw the man's pickup truck lose a back wheel before the accident.

By the time the badly-damaged body of George Thomas McAleer was found near Amtrak train tracks in Rosedale, he'd likely been dead for more than eight hours. McAleer, 26, of the 1100 block of Quantril Way in the Armistead Gardens neighborhood of Baltimore, was struck by Amtrak Train 181 in Rosedale around 9 a.m. on March 4, Amtrak officials confirmed Tuesday. The operators of the train did not report any collision or trespassers near the tracks at the time, and officials only determined Train 181 struck McAleer after reviewing surveillance footage from multiple trains that operated on the local tracks the day he was found, said Craig Schulz, an Amtrak spokesman.

If you're in an accident in which someone is injured or killed and police suspect you've been drinking, you're certain to be asked to take a Breathalyzer test or perform a field sobriety check. But if under similar circumstances authorities believe the accident was due to distracted driving while you were talking or texting on a cellphone, they have limited means to confirm their suspicions. That's why some lawmakers are calling for police to be given greater power to compel suspected distracted drivers to disclose cellphone numbers and other basic information about devices that may have played a role in an accident.
