ROCK HALL, Md. - A retired Maryland State Trooper was killed after a car came barreling into his business on Friday morning.
Phillip Nolan, Jr. retired from the Maryland State Police Department in 2005 as a sergeant. He was with the department 22 years.
Nolan's 57-year-old life was cut short after a police investigation revealed the driver of a Mazda lost control on Route 20 and crashed into his place of business.
The crash happened just after 6:00 a.m.
Nolan lived in the 22000 block of Rock Hall Road in Rock Hall.
There were two people in the vehicle at the time of the crash, and it is unknown what caused them to loose control and eventually leave the road.
Investigators say the car crashed into the garage of the business, and Nolan was in the living room area of the building.
The two people inside the vehicle are not being identified at this time as charges are pending.
Crash team investigators believe alcohol played a factor in the crash and are investigating the possibility of the car they used being stolen.
