Troopers investigate Waldorf hit-and-run
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.
