15-Year-Old Flown To Christiana Hospital After Maryland Crash Has Died, Six Others Injured



Maryland State Police have released details of Sunday’s three-vehicle crash that killed one and injured six others in Cecil County.

Officials said at approximately 3:20 p.m. on Sunday, troopers from the JFK Barrack responded to a three-vehicle crash in the area of NB I-95 in Perryville, Maryland. According to a preliminary investigation, a white Ford Expedition, being driven by a, 42, man from Fort Royal, Virgina, was traveling north on I-95 in the left lane, when he switched lanes and struck a black Chevrolet Silverado, according to police.

That collision caused the Silverado to strike a white Peterbilt tractor-trailer, which was in the right lane. According to a preliminary investigation, the Ford Expedition ran off to the left shoulder, struck the guardrail and came to rest in a ditch.

At least two people were ejected from the vehicle, including a 15-year-old Virginia girl. A Maryland State Police helicopter responded to the scene and transported her to Christiana Hospital in Delaware, where she succumbed to her injuries.

One adult and two other juveniles were transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital for treatment of their injuries. Another adult and a 14-year-old girl were transported by ambulance to Harford Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries. The driver of the Ford Expedition refused treatment at the scene.

The driver of the Silverado, a New Jersey man, and the driver of the tractor-trailer, were not injured as a result of the crash. The Maryland State Police CRASH Team and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division responded to the scene.

According to investigators, drugs, alcohol, and speeding are not believed to be factors in this crash. Northbound I-95 was closed for approximately four hours as a result of the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
