81-year-old killed in suspected heroin-related crash

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - On March 11, 2018 at approximately 1:54 pm officers responded to a report of multi-vehicle crash in the 300 block of Buschs Frontage Road in Annapolis.

The Ford Taurus was eastbound on Buschs Frontage Road at a high rate of speed when it appears to have crossed the centerline, sideswiped the Toyota Camry before rotating and being t-boned by the Ford F-150.  The driver of the Camry and both occupants of the Taurus were flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.  The remaining occupants the other vehicles were taken by ground to Anne Arundel Medical Center with minor injuries.  The driver of the Camry later died of her injuries and will be taken to the Medical Examiner for autopsy.

The preliminary cause of the crash was the failure to remain right of center and excessive speed by the driver of the Taurus.  It is also believed that heroin use is a contributing factor.  The Traffic Safety Section is handing the investigation and any charges will be after review by the States Attorney.
