Troop­ers in­ves­ti­gate Wal­dorf hit-and-run

Maryland Independent - - On The Agenda - By AN­DREW RICHARD­SON arichard­son@somd­news.com

State troop­ers are ac­tively in­ves­ti­gat­ing a hit–and– run ac­ci­dent that se­verely in­jured a mo­tor­cy­clist Sun­day night in Wal­dorf, ac­cord­ing to author­i­ties. As of press time, in­ves­ti­ga­tors were still search­ing for the driver in ques­tion, and were en route to in­spect a burned ve­hi­cle found in In­dian Head, which may have been in­volved in the crash.

Ron­ald An­thony Crews, 35, of Wal­dorf suf­fered se­vere in­juries as he was ejected from his mo­tor­cy­cle dur­ing the two–ve­hi­cle col­li­sion, po­lice re­ported. Crews was flown to a hospi­tal, but is now listed in sta­ble con­di­tion.

On June 27 at 10:15 p.m., Crews was trav­el­ing west­bound on MD Route 228 at high-rate of speed when an un­known ve­hi­cle — pos­si­bly a dark blue or black Chrysler PT Cruiser or Chevro­let HHR — trav­el­ing east U–turned into the west­bound lanes caus­ing the Crews to swerve, strik­ing the un­known ve­hi­cle in the rear driver’s side, eject­ing Crews, ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses in­ter­viewed by po­lice.

Speed and driver er­ror is be­lieved to be the cause of this col­li­sion which is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by Troop­ers from the Mary­land State Po­lice La Plata Bar­rack with the as­sis­tance of the Mary­land State Po­lice CRASH Team’s South­ern Re­gion Crash Unit.

Any­one who may have wit­nessed or who has in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this col­li­sion is asked to con­tact the MSP La Plata Bar­rack Duty Of­fi­cer at 301-392-1200.
