    JOPPA, Md. (WBFF) - Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a crash that killed a Howard County man on I-95 in Harford County during rush hour Monday.

    Police said Brian Matthew Connors, 42, of Glenwood in Howard County was driving south on I-95 just after 5 p.m. when he rear-ended a Jeep near the Route 152 exit, reported Maryland State Police.

    The Jeep was driven by Pamela Anne Flanagan, 54, of Baltimore.

    Both vehicles overturned on the shoulder.

    Connors was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol is suspected to be "a factor in Connor's driving ability," said police.

    Flanagan was extricated from the Jeep and taken by ambulance to Shock Trauma.

    The highway wasn't fully reopened for about 4 hours.
