Pedestrian Struck Resulting in Fatal Crash

  • By

On February 14, at approximately 6:44 p.m., a 2004 Toyota Tundra driven by Robert Nelson Jr., 40 of Charlotte Hall,  was eastbound on Mohawk Drive just past Lakota Lane in Charlotte Hall.  Nelson was traveling down the middle of the road, however the road is unlined. 

Virginia Burch, 61 of Charlotte Hall, was walking eastbound on Mohawk Drive just past Lakota Lane on the westbound side of the road.  Burch was struck by the truck and thrown into an adjacent snow bank lining the road. 

She was transported to Prince George's Shock Trauma by Maryland State Police Helicopter Trooper 7 where she succumbed to her injuries.  Nelson was not injured. 

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision. 

Members of the St. Mary's County Collision Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.  The investigation is continuing, anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact DFC Timothy Reese at (301) 475-4200 ext. 9115.
