Dougherty died at the scene, Mary­land State Po­lice said. Three pas­sen­gers were taken to the Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Med­i­cal Cen­ter at Dorch­ester in Cam­bridge, where they were treated and re­leased.

Dougherty was driv­ing a 1999 Mer­cur y sta­tion wagon on state Route 16 near Old Madi­son Road when the front pas­sen­ger grabbed the steer­ing wheel, caus­ing her to lose con­trol of the ve­hi­cle about 4:07 p.m. Fri­day, po­lice said.

The sta­tion wagon went off the road and over­turned in a wa­ter-filled drainage ditch, with all four oc­cu­pants trapped in­side, po­lice said. Upon re­mov­ing the oc­cu­pants, Dougherty was found to be de­ceased.

The pas­sen­gers were James Michael Dougherty, 59, of Madi­son, Cyn­thia Denise Dougherty, 57, of Madi­son, and a fe­male ju­ve­nile from Cam­bridge, po­lice said.
