Severn man dies, 2 injured after minivan crashes into tow truck on I-695 in SW Baltimore County

One person was killed, and two were injured in a two-vehicle crash Saturday morning on Interstate 695 in southwest Baltimore County, causing two lanes of the outer loop to close for several hours.

Around 8:05 a.m. on Saturday, troopers from the Maryland State Police responded of the outer loop I-695 in the area of Wilkens Avenue for a two-vehicle crash on the left shoulder, said Ron Snyder, a Maryland State Police spokesperson.

When they arrived, there were no injuries, and two truck operators were en route to assist with the removal of vehicles, Snyder said.

Troopers left the scene to investigate reports of a single-vehicle crash on the inner loop in the same area, Snyder said. During that investigation, troopers received reports around 8:30 a.m. that while the tow truck was on the scene of the initial outer loop crash, a minivan spun out and hit the tow truck, Snyder said.

The passenger of the minivan, Sang Yoo Kang, 60, of Severn, was pronounced dead at the scene by Baltimore County emergency medical services personnel, Snyder said.

The drivers of the minivan and tow truck were transported by ambulance for treatment of their injuries.

The outer loop of I-695 at Wilkins Avenue reopened after noon. The Maryland State Police Crash Team is leading the investigation.
