Four Killed In Fiery Anne Arundel County Head-On Collision
Posted on Feb 13, 2012
Investigators for the Maryland State Police have yet to determine why the Chrysler Sebring sedan carrying three teens was speeding in the wrong direction down the eastbound lane of US 50 when it struck a black BMW convertible head-on early Saturday morning. Tragically, everyone involved in the incident has died.
The accident happened around 3:30AM on Saturday, January 28th on US 50 just south of Crofton in Anne Arundel County. Authorities say that there had been several calls from other drivers reporting a vehicle driving the wrong way in the northbound lanes of I-97 and then US 50.
The Chrysler may have driving into oncoming traffic for nearly 5 miles, according to early reports.
One of the cars caught on fire as a result of the crash and in order to remove the victims the vehicles needed to be cut apart, several hours of work for firefighters at the scene.
The black BMW was driven by 55-year-old Terry Davis of Severna Park, a warehouse manager on his way home from visiting friends in Alexandria. He was pronounced dead at Anne Arundel Medical Center. He leaves behind Eduardo Lara, 54, his domestic partner of 31 years.
The Chrysler was driven by 19-year-old Brittany Walker, who was attending nursing classes at Anne Arundel Community College. Also in the car were Breanna Marie Franco and Zachary Tyler Rose. Miss Franco graduated from Severna Park High School in 2010. Miss Walker and Mr. Rose had graduated from Meade Senior High School in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
A small amount of marijuana was found in the Chrysler, but police do not yet know if intoxication or speed contributed to the accident.
