PASADENA, Md. - Police say alcohol and speed are behind a serious crash that sent two people to the hospital Saturday.
Devin Fraser, 27 and Kenneth Kemp, 60 both of Pasadena suffered life threatening injuries when their cars collided and spun out on Rt 100 and Catherine Ave. just before 2 a.m.
An investigation found that a 2011 Nissan Altima, driven by Fraser and a 2008 Ford Ranger pickup driven by Kemp were traveling west on Route 100 in the right lane when the Nissan rear ended the Ford. The impact caused the Ford to spin out of control and it came to rest in the woods. The Nissan also lost control and flipped over, coming to rest in the median. Fraser was ejected from the car. Rescuers found him in the median.
Both drivers were taken to Shock Trauma where they are listed in critical but stable condition.
Police say that excessive speed, alcohol, and seat belt usage are factors in this crash.
The Traffic Safety Section is continuing the investigation.
