Eldersburg Car Accident Leaves One Dead
A 35-year-old male succumbed to injuries from the accident at Carroll Hospital Center.
A 35-year-old man died Saturday afternoon from injuries sustained when he was ejected from his Jeep during a two-vehicle collision in Eldersburg.
Police were called to the scene at the intersection of Johnsonville Road and Piney Ridge around 1:15 pm. When they arrived, they found crews from the Sykesville Fire Department treating 35-year-old Leif Erik Foerter, according to police.
Foerter was transported to Carroll Hospital Center where he succumbed to his injuries, according to a police report.
Police said a Honda Accord traveling west on Piney Ridge Parkway entered into the intersection of Johnsville Road where it struck a north bound Jeep Wrangler. As a result of this collision, Foerter, who was driving the Jeep Wrangler, was ejected after impact.
The operator of the Honda Accord was transported to Carroll Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries, according to police reports.
Speed, not alcohol, is considered to be a factor in the collision, police said.
Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation, according to police.
