Driver dies in Md. after hit from behind
A driver died Thursday night in Burtonsville after the Toyota 4Runner he was driving was hit from behind while stopped at a red light, authorities said.
The 4Runner driver, Anthony Lee Austin, 57, of Silver Spring, was flown to Prince George's Hospital Center, but died there of his injuries.
He had been stopped in the southbound lanes of Columbia Pike at the intersection of Blackburn Road, about six miles north of the Capital Beltway, at 9:03 p.m., Montgomery County police said Friday.
He was hit from behind by a Toyota Tacoma, authorities said. The Tacoma driver, William E. Hauber, 35, of Philadelphia, was flown to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was listed in serious but stable condition.
Police said alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the case.
Anyone who may have information about this collision is asked to call investigators at 301-840-2435.
