From Maryland State Police, Barrack B:
White Hall, MD – A Pennsylvania man was killed in a two-vehicle collision early Sunday morning near the northern Harford County community of White Hall.
Donald Vangosen, 41, of Fawn Grove, PA died at the scene from injuries suffered in the crash on Norrisville Road (MD 23) just south of Harford Creamery Road.
Troopers from the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack “D” responded to Norrisville Road for a reported serious motor vehicle collision just after 5 a.m. The preliminary investigation by Troopers revealed Vangosen was traveling southbound on Norrisville Road in a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier. At the same time, a 2007 Nissan Xterra being operated by Charles Creaney, 22, of Bel Air, MD was northbound on Norrisville Road. Troopers determined the Nissan Xterra crossed the centerline of the roadway for unknown reasons, striking the Chevrolet Cavalier head-on.
Vangosen was the sole occupant of the Chevrolet Cavalier. Creaney and his passenger, 19-year-old Kimberly Martin of Bel Air, MD, were transported to York Hospital by Norrisville Volunteer Fire Company ambulances for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.
The consumption of alcoholic beverages is believed to have been a contributing factor in the collision. Norrisville Road was closed for nearly four hours with the assistance of the State Highway Administration while members of the Maryland State Police Crash Team reconstructed the collision. Troopers and Crash Team investigators will consult with the Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office prior to the filing of any charges. The investigation into the collision continues.

This is an ongoing investigation nothing has been determined , you are reporting inconclusive information based on here say.
Paul Mc says
Although in a court of law the information in the report would not fall under a hearsay exception, the officer that handled the investigation would be permitted to testify as to what was in the report, and the officer would even be permitted to use his report to refresh his memory during the testimony.
Though the information may be inconclusive, if there is a report and this is stated in it, it is most likely relevant and probably pretty reliable…and worthy of being reported.
Anyways, have a nice day.
Another innocent life lost to a drunk driver….
And of course the drunk driver has non-threatening injuries, they usually do walk away while the person they hit ends up dead. I cannot fathom what that family is going through.
I hope this kid sees prison for this act of MURDER….
Our family is going through hell, but thank you for your sympathy.
I can’t even imagine what it must be like. To have your loved one leave the house, innocently, and then get struck down in a senseless act of stupidity. I sincerely hope that this drunk idiot is off the streets.
Our family is mourning the loss of my brother greatly. We are so very thankful for the thoughts and prayers of people that don’t even know us, but feel for us. God has a plan, we don’t know what it is. But, He has and will continue to give us peace and comfort in the days to come. As we celebrate the holidays without Keith, we know he will live on in our hearts forever.
