    Two men were killed during a single-vehicle auto accident on Sunday in Edgemere.
    Paul L. Rice, 38, of the 2600 block of Sparrows Point Road, and Edward W. Nelson IV, 28, of the 8100 block of Dundalk Avenue were pronounced dead at the scene, according to a Baltimore County Police spokeswoman.

According to a police report, Rice was driving his 2004 Ford F-250 southbound on Millers Island Road on Sunday at 12:13 a.m.
    Rice was reportedly driving at a high rate of speed, police said, and crossed the center line into the north-bound lane of Millers Island Road.
    According to the crash investigation, Rice over-corrected his mistake and the pickup truck went into a “critical yaw.”
    It crossed back into the south-bound lane, went off the road and struck several trees before coming to rest on its roof, the report said.
    Rice was partially ejected from the vehicle. Nelson reportedly was able to get out of the truck and walked several feet before collapsing.
    Paramedics reported Rice dead at the scene at 12:20 a.m.
    Nelson was pronounced dead at 12:40 a.m., after the paramedics on the scene called doctors at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for a consultation.
