Shortly after 2:30 a.m. today, the Anne Arundel County 911 Center and the State Police Glen Burnie Barrack received calls reporting a vehicle, later identified as the 2011 Nissan Sentra, driving northbound in the southbound lanes of Rt. 97, near Rt. 50.

Troopers were immediately dispatched to intercept the car, but moments later, additional calls were received reporting a crash on southbound Rt. 97 north of Rt. 50.

The preliminary investigation indicates the vehicle traveling northbound in the southbound lanes struck a southbound Nissan Maxima head-on. It is unknown at this time why the driver was traveling the wrong way on the highway.

The driver of the at-fault vehicle, the Nissan Sentra, was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity is being withheld until his family can be notified.

The driver of the Nissan Maxima, operated by Rostant Edvin Ndel Sandiok of Capital Heights, was transported by ambulance to the University of Maryland Medical Center. A passenger in that vehicle, Noah J. Seely, was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
