Two men were killed in a two-car crash on northbound Interstate 270 on Wednesday, Maryland State Police said.
The crash happened just north of Baker Valley Road, around the scenic overlook, at around 9:50 p.m.
Maryland State Police stated in a news release that a 2013 Chevrolet Corvette was going north at a high speed when it changed lanes and hit a black 2011 Volkswagen Jetta.
The Corvette went off the road along the right shoulder and through a guardrail. The car hit several trees before it stopped on an embankment.
According to later MSP news release issued Thursday morning, the driver of the Corvette, Craig C. Sandford, 55, of Martinsburg, West Virginia, and one passenger, Anthony L. Hose, 56, of Damascus, were killed in the crash.
The Jetta crashed into the guardrail and remained on the road. The man who was driving the Jetta told The Frederick News-Post that the other car was weaving and speeding and struck him from behind. The man, who declined to give his name, was not injured and didn’t have any passengers in his car.
Northbound lanes were shut down while the crash was investigated.
