RANDALLSTOWN, Md. (WJZ) — Two people were killed in a crash in Baltimore County, and police believe speed may have been a factor.

Captain Mike Perry reports.

It happened just before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of  McDonough Road and Star Circle.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a Chrysler Cirrus driven by Melvin Bettis III, 22, of Pikesville, was traveling on McDonough Road.  For reasons unknown, the Cirrus crossed over the center turn lane into oncoming traffic.

The vehicle collided head-on with a Mercury Grand Marquis driven by Andre Murphy, 60, also of Pikesville.  The Cirrus rotated around,  and then struck a Nissan Pathfinder operated by a 33-year-old Owings Mills woman.

Both Bettis and Murphy were both pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the third vehicle was not injured.
