Posted on Nov 22, 2011
A resident of Montgomery County died early Saturday, Oct. 22 in a Maryland truck accident.
Michael Kenneth Nemes, 26, was driving along eastbound Interstate 70 in Woodlawn, Baltimore County around 2:30 a.m. when the accident occurred.
A tractor-trailer was attempting to make an illegal U-turn near the interchange of Interstate 695 and cut off Nemes' Chevy Suburban. Nemes' vehicle collided with the side of the truck.
Maryland State Police who responded to the accident said Nemes' sport-utility vehicle ended up underneath the truck, trapping Nemes.
Nemes, a resident of Cabin John, was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident shut down the eastern lanes of I-70 for four hours while an investigation was completed.
Police have not released the name of the truck driver. Any charges, including charges for the illegal U-turn, were still pending at press time.
Police do not yet know if alcohol was a factor in the accident.
Nemes was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.
