Howard County police have been notified that a driver involved in a collision last month in Columbia, Richard Cager, 61, of Severn, died at the hospital as a result of his injuries on Nov. 7.

At approximately 12:53 p.m. on October 29, a 2004 Chevrolet Tracker driven by Cager was traveling westbound on Little Patuxent Parkway approaching Cedar Lane when it was struck by a 2019 Chrysler 300 traveling northbound on Cedar Lane through the intersection. Debris from the collision also struck a nearby bicyclist.

The driver of the Chrysler and the bicyclist were not injured. Cager was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in critical condition.

Through preliminary investigation, police believe the Tracker was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes through a red light when it was struck. The intersection was closed for approximately three hours overnight.

The investigation is ongoing.
