David A Thompson Jr., of Charlotte Hall Leaves Behind 18-Year-Old Female Trapped in Vehicle After Crash

January 10, 2017

On Sunday, January 8, 2017, at approximately 9:00 a.m., Troopers from the Maryland State Police Forestville Barrack were dispatched to a single vehicle collision on Route 5 and Brandywine Road, in Brandywine.

The collision involved a 2002 Acura MDX, which travelled off the roadway, striking several trees, and overturning.

Due to the impact with the trees and the position of the vehicle at final rest, the passenger, Taylor MacKenzie Dye, 18 of White Plains, was trapped in the vehicle.

Upon arrival of EMS and police, witnesses stated the operator, David Anthony Thompson Jr., 18 of Charlotte Hall, exited the vehicle and fled the scene on foot into the woods.

After a lengthy extraction of the passenger, she was flown to Washington Medstar Hospital by MSP Aviation Trooper 2.

    Total disgrace as a man and a human being.

    • His sister! on January 10, 2017 at 7:16 pm

      Obvi you’d post anonymous to post such an idiotic comment like this. Grow up

      • Anonymous on January 11, 2017 at 11:01 am

        Tell your brother to grow up. A man will “man up” for his mistakes. A coward will run from them. If he would have stayed around, this wouldn’t even be news. Stop enabling him, you aren’t helping him. Or, you could tell us why he ran off leaving his passenger behind.

      • Steven on January 11, 2017 at 11:34 am

        Nope, that’s pretty disgraceful.

        Leaving the scene of an accident that you caused is pretty disgraceful.

        Did you make the same demand of your brother? You know, the guy who left a girl trapped in his car.

      • Chris on January 11, 2017 at 7:49 pm

        Sounds like your brother should take your advice.

      • Ryan on January 11, 2017 at 7:53 pm

        Your brother should have been trapped in the car instead of her. Or maybe you.

        Do you have nothing better to do with your time than stalk this article and come up with a comeback for everything someone else comments? Relax. He’s 18 and young, you’ll all grow up and laugh about it soon enough.

          Unless of course that was you or someone you loved trapped in that car. Then it would be different, right?

    • Mikey on January 11, 2017 at 1:32 pm

      The sister seems to be just a big of POS as him! Girl you cannot defend a cowardly, selfish act like leaving the scene of an accident with someone trapped in car. An to Taylor, she isn’t much brighter if she allowed him anywhere near her after the accident.

    Wow! Was this guy related to Ted Kennedy or what?

    • His sister! on January 10, 2017 at 7:15 pm

      Good one.. instead Taylor didn’t drown and he has spent every day going to the hospital to visit her. Try again

        Funny u say instead she didn’t drown .. um hello her life was still at risk as if she was about to drown ! Wake up !! I’m not just blaming him two people have a role in everything but obviously he’s a idiot an doesn’t love her no man would ever leave his women behind ! He was going to drop some drugs off like he’s done before.. smfh how many more times do they need to be in accidents and incidents for them to appreciate life !! Her life is forever changed !! He’s going to hospital everyday to see her? Um he shood of never put her life st risk with his if he wanted to act stupid to go see her in hospital everyday! An if I was her parents she wood never see him again an he would have charges pending !

        What a real winner leaving behind the young lady trapped in the car. I sure hope this wasn’t her boyfriend. The police need to lock him up for a long time. He needs to be taught a lesson. He should go to the hospital everyday. He owes the young lady that much.

What was he so scared of being caught with or doing? You may be his sister and I’m sure he’s a great guy, but people make mistakes and family and true friends hold those people accountable, not make excuses for them and enable them.

    Very unfortunate how they posted and headed this story. David attended the hospital soon after. Luckily taylor is doing well so far for those who are acting like they care half as much as David. Please don’t make biased news stories that people often rely on as source of info.

    I like how “his sister!” is on here name calling and replying to people for judging this guy negatively. 1. What are you 10? and 2. Why not give an explanation for why he was in the right for fleeing the scene of such a terrible accident? 3. “Don’t you have a job or a life?” Says the one commenting and replying to every comment. Maybe someone should take their own advice.

    • Anonymous on January 12, 2017 at 12:50 pm

      It’s mind blowing that people in this thread act like they know what actually happened. Have you thought about what you would’ve done if you crashed a vehicle into the woods and your loved one was hurt next to you? Sure, you of course make sure they’re okay, but once you realize you can’t find your phone and you need to get that loved one help, YOU GO SEARCHING FOR IT. I’ll wait for the official report to release after this investigation is all sorted out, but I guarantee 99% of you don’t even follow up with how this all unfolds. But go ahead, find the next story on here to call someone a POS as you sit in your house and live a perfect life. I’ve had a friend be accused of something similar to this, and the initial report didn’t depict what actually happened. Don’t be so ignorant.

    To “His Sister!” Your brother is not an honorable man. Any true man would have stayed with their friend until help arrived no matter what. If I was the girl in the hospital I would never want to see him again and I certainly would never trust him again. I hope he learns from this and one day he will know how a real man or any reasonable person should act. BTW, I have a job, a really good one because I don’t make stupid and cowardly decisions like your brother made. If you truly think what he did was reasonable then you need to get new friends or do a little growing up yourself.

It’s not all his fault but you act like he did nothing wrong , your brother has been in so much trouble for drugs and running from cops to ditch drugs he did the same to this poor girl and left her to die!!!! What don’t you understand! He has no heart or soul! You never leave someone ! If she died he wood be. HRged with mad laughter stupid !! But let me tell you I don’t know how many times it takes this couple to get in accidents and run from cops an drug dealers to appreciate life! Every second of everyday that we have someone else doesn’t she lu my god blessed her an him! So tell your family to wake up! At least she didn’t drown! Her life is forever changed!!

    His sister,

    I can appreciate you wanting to protect your brother. However, he left a friend at the scene of an auto accident with injuries in which he was at fault. I do agree with Anonymous, your brother is NOT A MAN and a sorry excuse for a human being. You could have been the passenger and he would have probably left you too. Had your brother been a TRUE FRIEND to the female passenger, he would have stayed on the scene and try helping her. I hope your brother does time for his actions. Hopefully your brother will learn a lesson from this incident.

      Or he ran like a big Bit@& because he wanted to hide his drugs or his license wasn’t good or he had a few to drink or whatever the reason you don’t leave the scene of an accident and you don’t leave someone you call a friend who is critically injured to suffer alone and scared. All of my scenarios make just as much if not more sense than he was in shock. Most people in shock just sit there and don’t respond to anyone not run away. Looking at case search he has an interesting driving past, maybe he needs to lose his license for a long time.

    1. The car went into the woods meaning help may not have arrived because the accident was not visible from the road. 2. David could not find his or the girl’s cellphone to call for help. If David had stayed with car, the girl might have actually died. 3. He ran to find help and found a man and borrowed his cellphone. 3. If David had “fled” the accident, don’t you think he’d be in jail… not sitting at the girl’s bedside. 4. Neither David’s father or any other family member own an acura. 5. His sister is not 10. She’s 24 and has a job, a fiance, and her own place of living. 6. The entire family is not “disgusting”. They are actually very nice people. 7. No one can ever say what they would do in the situation… because you do not know how you would react. 8. David was scared and had a concussion. His only reaction was to seek help. 9. Stop making up stuff and assuming things after reading a 2 paragraph fake news article. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet people!! Lastly, Taylor is doing better, loves David, and his happy that he his by her bedside. Stop making the situation worse for everybody.

      1. I saw the aftermath of this accident. There is absolutely no way that the car wasn’t seen. It was sitting on its side off the roadway and a lot of people stopped. 2. Flag down a car on Rt 5. Really that simple (see above). 3. He ran into the woods to “find help.” There were hundreds of cars passing on Rt 5. I guess that was too much trouble and the woods is the best place to find help. 3. (Don’t know why there were two 3s, but heres 3# again). Sometimes troopers issue tickets instead of arresting people. Especially at an accident. 4. So no one has an Acura. Was the car stolen? Who’s was it? Who cares? 5. She may not be 10, but she acts like it. And I am glad to hear that she has a job and her own place of living. That’s what adults do but maybe we should give her a medal. 6. No, the entire family are not nice people. David left a girl in a wrecked car. He’s not nice. 7. I can say what I would do. Not leave my friend behind while I ran. 8. Scared of what? 9. If this is so fake, why do you read and comment?

    Wow to all these responses! I appreciate everyone’s time but This will be the last post from me and I will not continue to read these idiotic comments from low life’s that have no clue what has happened besides what the article says. My family isn’t perfect, noones is.. but I will stand up for my brother when others that don’t know him or what happened decide to waste their time by adding their input. I’m 24! …not 10 that’s random?? I’m in dentistry and in school so I would say I’m pretty busy but like I said when uninvolved individuals want to have a part of everything going on in the world then I have to defend my brother. My family loves Taylor and we’re all praying for her to get better soon and I’m sure the last thing her and her family want right now is all this negativity toward THEIR situation. But people like all of you stuck in southern Maryland (for the rest of your lives) when something that happens is EVERYONES BUSINESS !!! Thanks for bashing me, my brother, my family and Taylor & her family, YOU are what’s wrong with the world today :)

    • Anonymous on January 13, 2017 at 9:17 am

      It is better then leaving her alone and scared not knowing if she would die alone. He didn’t have to touch her to be a good friend that night, just stand by her and comfort her like any honorable person would have done. BTW, to the sister or her friends, how did he end up in the woods and in a single car accident? Must have been that ghost deer running around. Next question, if he went for help then why didn’t he go back to the car after he found the help? Another question, if he called for help why didn’t he or the person he found tell the dispatcher where he was? Another question, if people saw him running away then why did he have to go through the woods for help? One more, doesn’t he have a suspended license? Lastly, him being out of jail means nothing, this is Maryland where he would be released on personal recognizance for anything. The whole thing sounds really fishy to me. But keep believe the BS your brother is telling you. My guess is some ware in those woods is a baggie of something.

    I am a friend of Taylor’s as well as close with her family and receive updates every day regarding her condition. First and foremost thank god she is alive and doing much better than anyone expected. I don’t know David personally, however, any person with a conscious and heart would NOT leave the person they so called “loved” regardless if they had drugs or were scared to get into trouble with the police. You call a person like that selfish and only thinks about himself. Yes he may be up at the hospital everyday, but only to “brainwash” her and tell her the story he wants her to hear and believe, so he doesn’t look like he did any wrong. The truth will come out David and you will get yours in the end. There is a little thing called KARMA and it will bite you in the a**.

  32. Family of Taylor Dye on January 20, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    For the person above who said “Taylor is okay and going to be just fine” doesn’t know what she is talking about. She has a brain injury and we are all hoping she will be fine – which we will not know for many months to come.
