Two of the three Hyattsville men are brothers.

Howard County Police have identified the three men that died in a Thursday morning crash in Elkridge. 

Degly Ubaldo Monroy Melendez, 20, and brothers Carlos Osorio, 25, and Oscar Osorio, 31, were killed. All three are from Hyattsville.

At the same time, a tractor-trailer was driving southbound on Route 1, making a left turn, and the Impala drove into it on the 7500 block of Washington Blvd., according to a preliminary report.

Police say Carlos Osorio was in the front passenger seat of the Impala and Oscar Osorio was in the rear passenger seat. 

The truck driver, a 58-year-old man, was not injured in the collision.

All lanes of Route 1 were closed for most of the morning near the scene of the collision.
