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.
