BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police now say a second person has died after a truck crashed last week in Essex, ejecting both the driver and the passenger.
Baltimore County Police say 23-year-old Christopher Andrew Fike, from Middle River, died from his injuries and was pronounced dead late Monday night, February 27.
The crash happened late on Thursday, February 23, around 11:24 pm. Police say Fike was driving the truck when it flipped over and ejected both him and one other man, 28-year-old Bryan Derek Mast from Middle River.
