Reisterstown Man, 27, Killed in Single-Vehicle Crash

The accident occurred early Sunday morning.

A Reisterstown man is dead following a single car accident early Sunday morning.

Christopher Klinefelter, 27, of the unit block of Bosley Lane, died of injuries sustained in the crash, police said. No other people or vehicles were involved in the crash.

At about 2 a.m., Klinefelter was traveling southbound on Garrison Forest Road when he "failed to negotiate a curve," according to a statement from police.

Klinefelter drove off the road and struck a retaining wall, Baltimore County police spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough said in an email.

The vehicle, a 2006 GMC Sierra, then flipped while airborne and landed back in the roadway. Klinefelter was ejected from the vehicle, McCullough wrote.

He was transported to Northwest Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police are still investigating the crash. No further details were made available.

It's too bad that he did not learn back in 2010 when he was found guilty of not wearing a seatbelt.

to court reporter.....you should think about the grieving family before making ignorant comments....

Thank god he only killed himself. Garrison, Shawan and Greenspring are covered with memorials of innocent drivers wearing seatbelts and traveling at reasonable rates of speed who are dead because somebody decided that speed limits do not apply to them. Wonder what he was doing out there during the wino hour?

How about the owner of the poor innocent retaining wall? How about the fact that people along Garrison have to take thier lives into their hands riding bikes or driving along a stretch of road flagged at 30 where this idiot decided to floor it after last call. Adding this to the list of memorials that my dogs pee on when I walk them around that stretch of road.

I agree with you, Brenda. You are absolutely correct. But accidents like this are SO preventable and senseless that when they do happen we get angry and frustrated rather than saddened. At least that's my feeling.
Richard Sanner December 18, 2012 at 04:02 PM
Shame on YOU Rex..Our family prays that YOUR family does not suffer a loss as great as our family has..Chris was a fine, young man, who made a mistake.

Disregard what Rex says. He is a coward. It's easy to make up a fake name and try to hurt people's feelings on the Internet. Everyone who knew Chris will remember him for who he was. This so called Rex is feeding off of the responses to his negative comments, don't give him the pleasure.

Richard Crystal,you're right,accidents like this are preventable and senseless but kids make mistakes ....but Iam positive if you knew Chris you would be very saddened. He was a wonderful young man who everyone would be proud to have him as a son.Instead of feeling angry and frustrated I wish you would feel compassion for his family. Put yourself in their place .......hind site is always 20/20... I just pray that all the young people out there learn a lesson from this tragic accident.

Everyone makes mistake! Chris was one of the best guys I know he was such a positive person and everyone who knew him loved him! Rex get off your high horse and stop pretending you have never done anything wrong in your entire life you conceited prick! Chris just past away and you have put rude comments online for all his friends and family to see, get a life!
