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.
