At 12:23 p.m. on March 6, Jonathan Scott Stuart, 17, of Mechanicsville, was driving a 1996 Honda Civic at a high speed, traveling North on Baptist Church Road.

Stuart attempted to pass another vehicle in a no passing zone - denoted by a double yellow line at a curve in the road. his car completed the pass, running the other vehicle off of the road in the process.

Mr. Stuart's vehicle then lost control and began skidding sideways across the South and North bound lanes of Baptist Church Road. It continued skidding sideways off road where it began rolling and overturned several times before coming to rest upright in a field, four tenths of a mile North of Chaptico Road.

Jonathan Stuart was partially ejected from the vehicle and suffered life-threatening injuries. He was flown to Baltimore University Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Charges are pending results of the investigation.
