Po­lice say a man was killed in a car ac­ci­dent in White Plains on Monday evening after fail­ing to stop at a red light.

Brian Joseph Mor­gal, 40, of La Plata was pro­nounced dead at the scene fol­low­ing the two-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion, ac­cord­ing to author­i­ties. The other driver re­fused med­i­cal treat­ment, though an un­in­volved driver stopped at the in­ter­sec­tion was

taken to the hos­pi­tal with non-life threat­en­ing in­juries after his ve­hi­cle was hit by de­bris.

Around 8:37 p.m. on Sept. 19, Mary­land State Po­lice troop­ers from the La Plata bar­rack re­sponded to the in­ter­sec­tion of U.S. 301 and Route 227, a press re­lease states. Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion showed that Mor­gal had been trav­el­ing south­bound on U.S. 301 in a GMC Sonoma when he failed to stop at a red light. As he crossed the in­ter­sec­tion, Mor­gal col­lided with a Ford F-350.

This was the 13th traf­fic fa­tal­ity of the year in Charles County.

An au­topsy will be per­formed by the Of­fice of the Chief Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner in Bal­ti­more.

Any­one who may have wit­nessed this crash is asked to con­tact the Mary­land State Po­lice La Plata Bar­rack Duty Of­fi­cer at 301-392-1200. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing and be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by Tfc. D. Buckalew and Trooper Zen­tkovich.
