Pasadena Man Critically Injured In Rollover Crash In Northern Anne Arundel County
BALTIMORE, MD – According to police reports, a Pasadena man was critically injured in a single-vehicle crash that took place at a BP station in northern Anne Arundel County.
The man driving a van was suspected to be driving drunk and impaired by marijuana when he was thrown from the van after his vehicle went airborne and crashed at a BP station in northern Anne Arundel County. A passenger was thrown from the van in the crash.
The incident took place just after 3:30 am on Monday. The single-vehicle crash took place in the lot of the BP station on Fort Smallwood Road and Sycamore Road in Baltimore. According to the Anne Arundel County Police, 21-year-old David Lucas Bowen of Port Deposit was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Venture van. As he was going northbound on Fort Smallwood Road, the van crossed the concrete median just past Lauren Way. After that, the van jumped the curb and sidewalk in front of the BP parking area before it became airborne, struck several light poles, before eventually landing on the roof in the parking lot.
21-year-old Julian Anthony Joyner, a passenger in the van, was thrown from the van during the rollover as he was not wearing a seatbelt. The driver suffered minor injuries, whereas Joyner’s injuries were critical. Both Joyner and Bowen were taken to Shock Trauma Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.
An investigation revealed that the primary cause of the crash appeared to be the driver’s failure to remain right of center. Moreover, he was believed to be driving under the influence, so alcohol and marijuana were both believed to be significant contributing factors. During the incident, Bowen was driving on a suspended learner’s permit.
Bowen ‘s charges are pending review by the State’s Attorney.
