From the Maryland State Police:
Troopers from the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack “D” are continuing their investigation into an early morning crash Monday, which claimed the life of a 20 year-old man.
Austin Robert Lentz of Keeneland Court, near Forest Hill, MD died as a result of the injuries suffered in the collision on Belair Road, just south of Reckord Road. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:55 a.m. crash by emergency medical personnel from the Fallston Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Company.
The investigation by Troopers revealed Lentz was traveling northbound in a 2012 Ford Mustang, just north of the Baltimore County line. Lentz was the sole occupant of the Mustang. At the same time, a 2003 Ford F-550 box truck was traveling southbound in Lane No. 2.
For unknown reasons, the Mustang lost control as it ascended the hill and rounded the curve in the road. The Mustang crossed the double yellow lines and collided with the front of the Ford truck. The operator and sole occupant of the box truck was identified as Donald Glen Ranger, 60, from Mount Wolf, PA. Ranger was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, MD, where he was listed in stable condition late Monday.
The collision forced the closure of Belair Road (US0001) for nearly four hours while investigators reconstructed the collision sequence and documented the scene.
The cause of the collision remains under investigation by Trooper First Class M. McWilliams and Senior Trooper J. Feaster. A copy of their findings will be forwarded to the Harford County State’s Attorney Office for review.
