Saturday morning on April 16, 2022, a vehicle crash left one Glen Burnie man in critical condition. After 6 a.m., Northern District officers responded to Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard (Rt. 648) near Oakleigh Avenue for a vehicle crash.
An investigation revealed that a 2019 Volkswagen GTI was traveling northbound on Baltimore Annapolis Blvd at Oakleigh Avenue when the driver, 41-year-old Donald Hicks, rear-ended a 2014 Honda. Upon initial impact, both vehicles continued northbound when the Honda left the roadway and struck a telephone pole.
The driver of the Honda was transported to Shock Trauma where he is currently in critical condition. The driver of the GTI, Hicks, was not injured in the collision. Failed to maintain their speed appears to be contributing factor in this collision. The investigation is ongoing.
