A Freightliner tractor trailer was going southbound on Crain Highway. A Honda was going eastbound on Annapolis Road. The Honda appears to have entered the intersection while facing a red traffic signal. The Freightliner struck the Honda in the intersection. The driver of the Freightliner was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the Honda was pronounced dead on the scene.
