Tree Falls On House; Kills Man. Officials said Hurricane Sandy is responsible for second storm-related death in Maryland. The first death came in a storm-related crash in Montgomery County. A man was killed when a tree crashed through a house in Anne Arundel County, officials said. Fire officials said they responded to a report of a tree into a house with entrapment at a home in the 7700 block of Suitt Drive in Pasadena just before 11 p.m. Monday.

MD Bridges Reopen After Storm.  All the major bridges in Maryland that were closed Monday because of high wind gusts associated with what was Hurricane Sandy have reopened Tuesday morning. The Susquehanna River crossings — Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge (U.S. Route 40) and the Millard E. Tydings Bridge (Interstate 95) — reopened shortly after 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. The bridges had been closed for more than 12 hours.

Pedestrian Error Possible Factor In Ferndale CrashAnne Arundel County police said pedestrian error may have contributed to a crash  late Friday night in Ferndale. Officers said evidence collected at the scene indicated that Justin Michael Laurenroth, 18, who was driving a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible, was traveling south on Aviation Boulevard near Allwood Drive shortly after 10 p.m.

Driver Ejected From Vehicle, Killed.  Anne Arundel County police believe speed may have been a factor in a fatal crash in which a vehicle bounced off roadside objects before it overturned several times. Officers, who arrived on the scene Friday at about 2:54 p.m., said 35-year-old Christina Marie Tobash, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was ejected from the vehicle before it came to rest.
