Of­fi­cial in­jured in sec­ond crash while in­ves­ti­gat­ing fa­tal wreck

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Mary­land State Po­lice say a foren­sic in­ves­ti­ga­tor was in­jured at a fa­tal crash scene in Ce­cil County when a pickup truck drives through a road clo­sure.

Po­lice said in a state­ment Mon­day that 74-year-old Es­tel Priv­ett was killed in a crash on Pu­laski High­way on Satur­day.

While po­lice in­ves­ti­gated that crash, all east­bound lanes were closed. But po­lice say a Toy­ota Tun­dra drove through the road clo­sure, hit a State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion ve­hi­cle and a state po­lice ve­hi­cle, which then hit a foren­sic in­ves­ti­ga­tor.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tor and the truck’s driver were taken to a hos­pi­tal, but po­lice didn’t re­lease their con­di­tions.

Po­lice say they be­lieve that im­pair­ment by al­co­hol and con­trolled dan­ger­ous sub­stances con­trib­uted to the sec­ond crash, but no charges have been filed in ei­ther crash.
