Maryland trooper strikes pedestrian in fatal car accident

A 29-year-old woman was killed in a fatal accident, involving a Maryland state trooper last Friday night on Shopping Center Drive in Stevensville.

The pedestrian accident happened as the 24-year-old officer drove westbound on Rt. 50 to assist with a burglary call in Queen Anne's County just before 9:00 p.m. Preliminary reports indicate that the patrol car's lights and siren were not in use at the time of the car accident.

The Maryland State Police CRASH Team is conducting a detailed investigation into the fatal car accident. CRASH investigators will determine whether the vehicle's lights and siren should have been on, and they will report their findings to the Queen Anne's County State Attorney's Office for review. The trooper is assigned to road patrol at the Centreville Barrack.

The victim was waiting for a ride with a friend near the Shopping Center Drive access ramp. She wore a black t-shirt and blue jeans. According to the friend, the two were sitting on the concrete barrier that divides Rt. 50 from Shopping Center Drive. She had just borrowed her friend's cell phone to make a call when she left the wall, stepped into the roadway and was hit by the driver's front bumper of the trooper's car, which was heading west on the access road. Emergency medical personnel pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

The trooper, a six-year-veteran, was transporting a 24-year-old ride-along passenger in his patrol car at the time of the car accident. The officer and his passenger suffered minor injuries, but neither required medical treatment.
