On December 25, at approximately 10:06 p.m., a multiple vehicle collision occurred at southbound Maryland Rt. 4 and White Sands Drive in Lusby.
Rescue crews along with a Crash Reconstruction Team responded to investigate the report of a fatality.

Investigation revealed a 2007 Jeep Compass being operated by William Harris Marley III, 18 of Lusby, attempted to make a left turn onto White Sands Drive from Maryland Rt. 4.

A 2007 Toyota Sequoia operated by John Stephen Murphy Jr., 46 of Hollywood, was traveling south on Maryland Rt. 4 in the fast lane. A 2001 Dodge Ram truck operated by Terry Lynn Wilder, 41 of Prince Frederick, was traveling south on Maryland Rt. 4 in the slow lane. As the Jeep pulled across Rt. 4 it struck the left rear bumper of the Toyota before pulling into the path of the Dodge. The Dodge then struck the passenger side of the Jeep along the passenger side front door in the slow lane.

As a result of the collision the adult rear passenger in the Jeep, Emilia Mary Marley, 44 of Lusby was killed and Marley's 16-year-old daughter was transported with a fractured pelvis. The driver and front passenger of the Jeep , Kristen Erin Odonnell, 18 of Prince Frederick, were transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital for medical treatment. All three occupants of the Dodge truck including two adults and one juvenile were also transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital for treatment. The Toyota returned to the scene of the collision and waited for emergency personnel to arrive.

Road conditions were wet with poor visibility due to fog. The streets lights were on and the traffic signal was functioning. No persons were impaired.

The accident remains under investigation.
