Preliminary investigation revealed Michael Sullivan Bauckman, age 41, of California, was traveling southbound on Three Notch Road in a 2012 Nissan Murano. For unknown reasons, Bauckman’s vehicle left the roadway and entered the culvert in the median. As the vehicle traveled up the culvert, it was launched into the air before rolling over and coming to rest on the northbound shoulder.
Bauckman was transported to Prince George’s County Shock Trauma by Trooper 7, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Speed appears to be a factor in the collision, and at this point, it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were also a factor.
Anyone with any information regarding the collision is asked to contact DFC. Beyer #246 at 301-475-4040 or Christopher.Beyer@stmarysmd.com.
