Alleged wrong turn ends in four injured
1-year-old among those in crash; charges pending for Bryantown mother
Driving in the wrong direction on Route 4, a Bryantown woman crashed her minivan into an SUV Oct. 13, police say, resulting in the minivan catching fire and four people, including a 1-year-old child, injured.
Police responded around 10:23 p.m. Oct. 13 to the area of Route 4 and Route 260 to find one minivan completely engulfed in flames and a Nissan SUV only a few feet away. Before first responders arrived, some pulled over their cars, removed all four occupants from both cars and pulled them to the center median where they continued to render the injured aid, according to a Calvert County Sheriff’s Office press release sent Tuesday.
Police later identified Adrienn Eva Raschka, 33, as the driver of the minivan with her 1-year-old child in the car. Heading south from Annapolis, Raschka reportedly made a wrong turn somewhere when entering Route 4 and was traveling southbound in a northbound lane on Route 4. Her car then struck the SUV that was traveling northbound on Route 4.
Tiye Camille Ray-Drewrey, 47, of White Plains, the driver of the Nissan, was transported to a Prince George’s County hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, according to the release. An unnamed woman who was the front seat passenger in Ray-Drewrey’s SUV was transported by ground to the same hospital.
The young child was transported to Children’s Hospital, and Raschka was taken to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, both with non-life threatening injuries, police said. Police said charges against Raschka are pending. Anyone with any additional information is asked to call Deputy William Freeland at 410-5352800.
