    Would be interesting to hear the answer from the wrong side driver about what he was thinking when he saw a white line on his left. All roads in St Mary County should have a barrier down the middle.

      Your stupid ass comments need a barrier. Get a life you dork.

      If you payed attention you would have noticed the driver that crossed the line perished in this accident. At this point it doesn’t matter why.

      Prayers to all involved.

    For a head-on crash, the Ford Edge faired quite well as compared to the Mercedes Benz! Prayers for all involved and to the families of the deceased.
