A three-car accident in Bryans Road, Charles County resulted in multiple injuries and the death of a seven-year-old girl, according to an ABC 7 news report. The tragic accident occurred Sunday afternoon on Route 210.
According to Maryland State Police (MDSP), a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV, driven by a 73-year-old man from Fort Washington, crossed the median on Route 210 near Lewis Drive and struck a Chevy Trailblazer, and then proceeded to sideswipe a Nissan Altima. Police determined that alcohol was in fact a factor in the crash. The driver of the Chevy Tahoe was travelling southbound on Route 210 when he crossed the median and hit the two northbound vehicles.
The driver of the Nissan Altima, a woman from Waldorf, sustained life-threatening injuries and was flown to a shock trauma center. The seven-year-old girl, who was a passenger in the Nissan, died at the scene. The driver of the Tahoe sustained non-life threatening injuries, but was also flown to a shock trauma center. The female passenger of the Trailblazer was transported to a hospital via ambulance.
