A Wal­dorf woman died from in­juries she sus­tained dur­ing a Fri­day morn­ing col­li­sion in the area of Piney Church Road in Wal­dorf.

Around 8 a.m. July 28, the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­ported that a car crash took place in the vicin­ity of Piney Church Road near Ren­ner Road.

A pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that the driver, a 20-yearold male from Wal­dorf, was trav­el­ing north on Piney Church Road in a Honda Civic when he lost con­trol of the car and hit a util­ity pole. Ac­cord­ing to the press re­lease ob­tained from the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice the driver and two pas­sen­gers — a 19-year-old male and a 20year old fe­male — were trans­ported to a hospi­tal by am­bu­lance with se­ri­ous in­juries.

The re­lease iden­ti­fied a fourth oc­cu­pant of the car as Leia Jes­sica Bet­tis, 20, of Wal­dorf, who was pro­nounced dead at the scene by med­i­cal staff. Ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials, it is not im­me­di­ately clear why the driver left the road­way.

Ac­cord­ing to the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Twitter ac­count, Piney Church Road was closed down for sev­eral hours in both di­rec­tions be­tween Pos­ton Drive and Ren­ner Road.
