One dead, nine injured in head-on bus collision in Anne Arundel County

An Anne Arundel County man was killed and 10 people were injured Saturday night when a car collided with an MTA bus in Glen Burnie, police said.

Marcus Antonio Anderson, 27, of Odenton, lost control of his Lincoln LS and crossed into a lane of oncoming traffic, colliding head on with an MTA bus on 8th Avenue, just west of Crain Highway at about 9:45 p.m.

Anderson, who was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, and his 14-year-old passenger were not wearing seat belts, according to the Anne Arundel County Police. The teenager was taken to Johns Hopkins Pediatric Trauma Center and in stable condition.

The bus driver, who was wearing a seat belt, and eight of her 10 passengers were also taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

Police said that “speed and driver error” by Anderson were considered major factors in the collision. Officials could not immediately say whether alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash and are continuing to investigate.
