Shortly before 4:30 p.m. March 27, Maryland State Police at the Princess Anne Barrack were dispatched to a multi-vehicle crash on Rt. 413 near Lovers Lane. Due to the severity of the crash and the involvement of a commercial vehicle, barrack troopers requested assistance from the State Police Crash Team and the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division.


The preliminary investigation indicates the Toyota and the truck were both northbound on Rt. 413. The Toyota was stopped to make a left turn, apparently into a driveway. At this time, the investigation indicates the truck failed to stop and struck the rear of the Toyota, pushing it into the southbound lane and into the path of the oncoming Dodge.


The preliminary investigation does not indicate alcohol was a factor in this crash. The Crash Team is conducting a detailed reconstruction of the crash. Upon completion of the investigation, the report will be forwarded to the Somerset County State’s Attorney’s Office for review regarding charges to be filed. No charges have been filed at this time.
