A 75-year-old man who was injured in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday near Smithsburg died at a Baltimore hospital Thursday.

John Anderson, of Baltimore, was pronounced dead at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center Thursday, according to a trauma center spokeswoman. The spokeswoman did not release information on the cause of his death.

Maryland State Police's investigating officer, Trooper 1st Class Russ Plante, could not be reached for comment on the crash investigation or for the specific cause of Anderson's death.

Hagerstown-based Maryland State Police Lt. Greg Johnston said Wednesday no charges were filed in connection with a 1:08 p.m. crash on Md. 491 involving a minivan driven by Anderson and a lumber truck driven by Steven Presley, 55, of Waynesboro, Pa.

Police said Anderson, who was southbound, drove his 2002 Chrysler Town & Country minivan over a concrete median and skidded into a northbound lane of traffic instead of continuing around a turn in the road. The minivan hit the back cab area of Presley's 1992 Peterbilt truck and bounced back into the southbound lane.

Wesley refused treatment for minor injuries, police said.
