The truck hit the car from behind – pushing it towards the shoulder – and then caught fire, pinning the men in their vehicle, according to police. The truck driver was not injured.

Andrew Geraci, a filmmaker and friend of the men, said Whittier and Brubaker would return to Maryland Thursday from a production in Philadelphia.

Halethorpe-based Brubaker pioneered virtual production filming and created the first large-scale LED wall in the Baltimore-Washington area, Geraci said.

Whittier, of Havre de Grace, founded or owned camera equipment companies in Baltimore, Philadelphia and Alexandria, Virginia before recently selling his company, the newspaper reported.
