Edgemere Car Crash Victims Are Identified

Paul Luke Rice and Edward William Nelson IV were killed in the one-vehicle crash on Millers Island Road early Sunday.

The two men killed in an early-morning car crash Sunday in Edgemere have been identified by Baltimore County Police Department officials.

Paul Luke Rice, 38, of the 2600 block of Sparrows Point Road, and Edward William Nelson IV, 28, of the 8100 block of Dundalk Avenue, were killed in the one-car crash.

Police responded to a call about the crash at 12:13 a.m. Sunday, according to police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.

Rice was driving his 2004 Ford F250 pickup truck at a high rate of speed in the southbound lane of Millers Island Road, according to Rogers-Feher. Because of his speed, he was having trouble keeping the truck in his lane and went into the northbound lane of Millers Island Road.

Rice over-corrected, Rogers-Feher said, which caused him to lose control of the truck. He crossed back over the southbound lane, left the roadway on the western side and struck several trees before the truck came to a rest on its roof.

Rice was partially ejected from the truck and was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:20 a.m., according to the spokeswoman.

Nelson climbed from the wreckage and walked to the road, where he collapsed. He was pronounced dead on the scene at 12:40 a.m. by a Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center doctor who was consulting by phone with medics on the scene, Rogers-Feher said.

Speed appears to be the contributing factor in the crash, the spokeswoman said.

Luke was a wonderful person. Anyone's negative comments mean nothing to me or anyone that knew him. If you were at the viewing or at the funeral even an idiot could see that He had more people love him than I've ever seen in my life, So many WONDERFUL people in our community shed tears for two wonderful people who are no longer here. You are correct you do have the right to leave your opinion. But they are like A**holes everyone has one. Mine and everyone elses mean nothing to the negative comments left just as I assure you - yours means nothing to us. I will not waste my time backlashing anyone for theircomments...Luke was bigger and better than most people I know and he wouldn't want that. I love you Lukie......and my prayers go out to the Nelson Family.
