Fatal car accidents often require an extensive investigation to determine exactly what happened. A reconstruction of the crash can reveal whether efforts were made by drivers to avoid a collision.

A 61-year-old Middle River man was killed after an accident on Feb. 1 at 11:15 p.m., according to Maryland State Police. The crash occurred in Queen Anne as the man was driving a Ford
