FREDERICK, Md. - Two Frederick men died Tuesday after their car was struck by another car and a tractor-trailer on Interstate 70 in Frederick about 12:25 p.m., Maryland State Police said.

The passenger, Alvin S. Culver, 81, was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver, Verlin Arnold Krabill, 83, was taken to Washington County Hospital, where he died of injuries sustained in the crash, police said.

Krabill was in the far left lane of westbound I-70 when he attempted to cross three lanes of traffic to exit onto northbound U.S. 15, police said. As his 2004 Buick LeSabre entered the second lane from the left, it was struck by a 2006 Chevrolet operated by Gerald Wayne Hayes, 53, of Frederick, police said. The collision caused the Buick to spin out of control and travel into the third lane from the left, where it was struck by a tractor-trailer driven by Robert LeFever Sauder, 51, of Hagerstown.
