DAVIDSONVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say two young men are dead after their speeding car crashed in a wooded area in Anne Arundel County.
Police said in a statement Sunday that 22-year-old Dustin Smith and 24-year-old Ryan Weibley, both of Edgewater, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The statement says the men were in a white Honda Civic, which passed a state trooper in an unmarked patrol car at a high rate of speed Saturday night.
Police say the car was believed to have been going more than 100 mph. The trooper attempted a traffic stop but lost sight of the vehicle.
Soon after, police say another trooper responded to a crash and found the Civic in the woods.
Police identified Smith as the driver and Weibley as the passenger. An investigation is ongoing.
