GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WMAR) - A man is dead and 10 people are injured after a car slammed into a bus in a fiery head-on crash in Glen Burnie Saturday night.

According to police and fire officials the car was then driven backwards more than forty feet and caught fire before it stopped in the eastbound lane of 8th Avenue. Fire crews arriving on the scene used the Jaws of Life to pry two passengers out of the car. Police said neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt.

Anderson was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center where he died a short time later. A fourteen-year-old passenger was taken to Johns Hopkins Pediatric Center where he is listed in stable condition.
