November 10, 2017

UPDATE – Official Police Press Release – 11/10/2017: On Thursday, November 9, 2017, at approximately 6:30 p.m., Deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Three Notch Road and Kessler Way, in Lexington Park, for the report of a serious motor vehicle collision. Based on the severity of injuries, a request for the Collision Reconstruction Unit was made.

Preliminary investigation determined a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500, operated by Robert McCarson, 30, of Ridge, was traveling southbound on Three Notch Road when it struck the rear of a 2005 Honda Pilot, operated by Michael Tapia,  48, of Beaver Creek, Ohio. The Honda proceeded across the centerline and left the roadway entering the wood line, striking several trees. Both McCarson, and Tapia were transported by Maryland State Police Helicopter to an area trauma center. A female passenger in McCarson’s vehicle was taken by ambulance to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, and two minor children were flown to Children’s Hospital for precautionary reasons.

At this time, all involved parties are in stable condition or have been released from the hospital. At this time speed appears to be a contributing factor in the collision.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision, and has not provided a statement, is asked to contact Cpl. Brian Connelly at (301) 475-4200 extension *8031.

      Im hearing all three drivers ended up in jail, 2 for being drunk, and the guy from Ohio driving with a suspended license.

        Wrong! Ohio driver was not at fault, did nothing wrong and was most severely injured.

    So what is the deal with the third car that appears to have hit the pickup head on then travelled 40 feet off the roadway?
