From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
On Sunday, August 10, 2014 at approximately 1:25 A.M., Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies from the Northern Precinct responded to the 1300 block of Moores Mill Rd. for a reported serious motor vehicle collision.
Upon arrival, deputies located a single vehicle involved: a silver 2002 Honda Civic. The Honda had been operated by Ryan J. Christ, 19 years old, of the 500 block of Bantry Court, Forest Hill, Md 21050.
There were two passengers in the Honda:
Passenger #1: Zachary Salkowski, 19 years old of the 1300 block of Allenby Court, Bel Air, Md., and
Passenger #2: Conrad Dax also 19 years old of the 1000 block of Manchester Court, Bel Air, Md.
Investigation at the scene revealed the Honda was travelling east on Moores Mill Road when the driver, Mr. Christ lost control leaving the south side of Moores Mill Road, and struck a fire hydrant with its left side. The Honda continued sliding sideways and struck a large tree with its left side and then came to rest trapping the driver and one passenger. A second passenger was able to exit the vehicle on his own.
The trapped individuals were extricated by members of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company. Mr. Christ was originally transported by ambulance to the University of Maryland, Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, where he was stabilized. He was then transported to the University of Maryland’s Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Both passengers were transported by ambulance to the John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, for treatment. Their conditions are currently unknown.
The Harford County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit is continuing to investigate the possible cause(s) of the crash. The Traffic Unit is asking for anyone who may have information related to the crash to contact them at 443-409-3324.
