fatalOn October 28, 2014 at 1:36 a.m., Troopers from the Maryland State Police, Leonardtown Barrack, responded to Maryland Route 234 in the area of Delozier Lane, in Mechanicsville for the report of a motor vehicle collision.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2003 Chevrolet Duramax truck operated by Jeremy Ryan Hunley, 24 of St. Mary’s County was traveling eastbound on Route 234 west of Delozier Lane. A 2004 Chrysler Sebring operated by Matthew Mason Truitt, 21 of Calvert County was traveling westbound on MD Rt. 234 west of Delozier Lane.

The operator of the Chevrolet truck fell asleep and entered the westbound lane ofRoute 234. The operator of the Chrysler attempted to take evasive maneuvers and entered the eastbound lane of Route 234 in an attempt to avoid the Chevrolet truck. The operator of the Chevrolet truck woke up and swerved back into the eastbound lane. The Chevrolet truck collided into the passenger side of the Chrysler. After the collision, the Chevrolet truck entered a ditch/culvert and overturned. The Chrysler also left the roadway and came to rest in a ditch on the eastbound side of Route 234.

The front passenger of the Chrysler, Tiffany Danielle Henderson, 22 of Calvert County was ejected from the vehicle and succumbed to her injuries on the scene.

The operator of the Chrysler, Matthew Mason Truitt was transported to Prince George’s Hospital via Maryland State Police helicopter Trooper 7.

The operator of the Chevrolet truck, Jeremy Ryan Hunley refused treatment at the scene.

The collision is being investigated by TFC Mersman, Maryland State Police- Leonardtown Barrack.

The State’s Attorney was notified of the collision and responded to the scene. The Maryland State Highway Administration responded to the scene and assisted with the road closure and traffic detour. At this time, it appears that alcohol is not a factor in this collision.

    Praying for everyone involved. It seems as though the lady who passed was probably Matthew’s girlfriend, so my heart really goes out to him. He tried his hardest to protect both of their lives. Praying for the families and all involved!

    Jeremy Ryan Hunley has at least three previous traffic citations. 3/14/14 speeding in a 45mph zone, 9/4/12 no seatbelt, and the most interesting, 7/24/11 FAILURE TO CONTROL VEH. SPEED ON HWY. TO AVOID COLLISION. So it looks like he really did it this time. Watch out for his vehicle when driving.

      You got alot to do with your life to take the time to look that up and a P.O.S for posting it. This man is going through a very rough time right now and no one should be bashing people during a time such as this.

      You are one pathetic sob.

      It is easy to cast stones….I’m sure your driving record is perfect..it is sad for all those involved, get to know all party’s before you make an ignorant comment Lord please be with all the familys

      I would love to see your driving record Mr. Anonymous. This is a tragic time for all involved. Jeremy has no criminal record, and this ACCIDENT had no alcohol involved, no drugs were involved and I didn’t read anything about speed or texting. He fell a sleep and in a short moment his world and the other families worlds have been tragically changed. Karma eventaully get ugly people and idiots like you for posting stupid crap that have nothing to do with what happened. You don’t think he will be reminded or think about this for the rest of his life? My thoughts and prayers go out to the family that lost their child, granddaughter, sister, friend, to the driver of the other car and his family, and to Jeremy and his family. They are all going through a tragedy.

      Really? You have no heart. You disgust me. Taking a kick at people when they are down really shows colors. Everyone stop responding to this person. Misery loves company. Don’t give this person the responses they want. Keep them all in your thoughts and hope that everyone learns and moves forward from this. Very sad story to read. =/

      I’m sure this information would make her father feel so much better. Maybe you should write it in a Birthday card for Tiffany and give it to her dad on Saturday, the 1st. Yeah, you read that correctly. Think before you post unnecessary nonsense.

      you’re an ass…..what do you know about him….NOTHING….He’s never done anything to anyone…never hurt anyone. The man fell asleep at the wheel, he wasn’t drinking. He will live the rest of his life knowing that he killed a young woman….You need to think before you post ignorant comments like this.

    • Bobby on October 29, 2014 at 7:16 pm

      I did CPR on the girl that died, and have not been able to sleep since this accident. I met Jeremy, and the look in his eyes said it all. He fell asleep….he wasn’t drinking. You have a lot of nerve posting something like this. I pray that Karma finds you and does its job. Both Jeremy and his family are in for a life time of heart ache from this….I believe that’s punishment enough. I pray Tiffany’s family can find it in their hearts to forgive him, and I believe they will. You should really be ashamed of yourself for posting this.

    If you are tired DONT DRIVE! Now, this unhurt driver took the life of a 22 yr old young lady ’cause he didnt get a enough rest!

    • Bobby on October 29, 2014 at 7:16 pm

      really?….you’ve never driven tired?…Kill yourself…right now!

    So extremely horrible, terribly sorry for the families of all involved. Praying all parties can forgive and experience a brief mourning period and swift healing to the or hearts and memories. I scant imagine.

    R.I. P. Tiffany :-( Prayers for the family and many prayers and love to Joey (JEH) Sad for loss of such a wonderful girl.
    Love, Lis, Richie and Kaylee

    Sadly things like this happen, people are out all hours of the night and sometimes people drift and run off the road, it seems as though this young man did everything he could during and after the crash to help this young woman. I think it is despicable that anyone should be posting previous history about the parties involved. How many times have this happened in your own life in the past three years? A speeding ticket, hitting a rumble strip texting while driving. My point is everyone makes mistakes and this is something he will have to live with for his entire life. I don’t think he needs people judging him on a website, I am sure he feels bad enough without any help from people who have nothing better to do with their time then to look up someone’s driving infractions. My thoughts are with all families involved.

    • Bobby on October 29, 2014 at 7:20 pm

      Yes….well put!

      Excellent point, Mary.

    Jeremy Hunley is a good man. He has a family and goes to work every day !!! This was a tragic accident !!! It has left Jeremy and his family devistated. He will have to live with this for the rest of his life. for the trashy busybodies who put his business out there trying to bash him in public, Well you should probably know who and what you are talking about before you comment, Please try to mind your own business,try to get a life and maybe you can stop looking up people and adding insult to injury. Stop trying to cause suffering and pain to some one you know nothing about !!! You have only made yourself look foolish and dumb !!!
