BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Authorities say a driver who failed to stop at a stop sign in Glen Burnie Friday afternoon has died possibly from injuries sustained during a car accident.
Anne Arundel County police say 85-year-old John Payne Jackson has died after he allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a box truck at the intersection of Baltimore Annapolis Blvd and Kuethe Road.
Investigators responded to the scene at 3:31 p.m. where they say they found Jackson, the driver of a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, alert and conscious. He was transported to Shock Trauma as a precaution and died later that evening.
