Upon arrival, deputies found two vehicles and a total of five occupants to be involved in the collision. Due to the serious nature of the collision, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Collision Reconstruction Unit responded and continued the investigation.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 1998 Honda Accord, operated by Kyle William Sullivan, age 21, of Lexington Park was traveling south on Three Notch Road, when the Honda slowed to make a left turn into a private driveway. A 2011 Ford Ranger, operated by Kyle Lee Akers Redman, age 29, of Avenue, was traveling south on Three Notch Road, when it struck the rear of the Honda. Passengers in the Honda Accord were Brittney Nicole Luzano, age 21, of Lexington Park, Sarah Elizabeth Rand, age 35, of Lexington Park, and Damian Michael Sullivan, age 3, of Lexington Park.

The operator and adult passengers in the Honda Accord were transported to area Trauma Centers for treatment. The juvenile was transported from the scene and was pronounced deceased upon arrival at the hospital. The operator of the Ford Ranger was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for incapacitating injuries, and has since been released.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or any events leading up to the collision, that has not already provided a statement, is asked to contact Corporal Brandon Foor #235, at (301) 475-4200 extension *2265, or by email at Brandon.Foor@stmarysmd.com.

Crews arrived on scene to discover a two vehicle collision, involving a Ford Ranger and a Honda passenger vehicle.

Three people were transported to a local trauma center via two Maryland State Police helicopters.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation and the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Collision Reconstruction Unit responded and assumed the investigation.

        In fairness to rziggy, the original article, that they responded to, did not identify people in the vehicles beyond just the 2 drivers

        I’m not going to say there was or wasnt a car seat, I dont see one, but with the way that car was mangled, its possible its out of view. Its also possible the child was removed from the car by taking the car seat out with him still in it. Its definitely not a car seat on the road. Those are the bags of gear from the first responders

      There actually is

    • Anonymous on January 9, 2018 at 8:11 pm

      There is a car seat back there. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Can you see the damaged that is done to the car? Know the facts before you speak. You were not there, no have no clue what shape that care was in. The pictures do not do not show everything. I find this pictures disturbing and your comments disturbing. I pray for this babies family.

        An Emt that responded stated he was only in a booster. That is useless for a 3 year old. This isn’t why car seat safety is so important.

      • Anonymous on January 10, 2018 at 10:38 am

        Actually, I’ve spoken to an EMT who was on the scene. The child was in a booster with a lap belt when he should have been in a 5 point harness carseat still. Car seat safety is so important

      • Amber on January 10, 2018 at 10:41 am

        Actually, I spoke to one of the emts on the scene and the child was in a booster seat with a lap belt. He should have still been in an actual car seat with a 5 point harness. So sad…. Car seat safety is so important.

      There was a car seat don’t be a jackass

    • Kathie smith on January 9, 2018 at 11:09 pm

      Ems removed the seat to remove the child. The child lost its life because someone was not paying attention, and obviously going to fast. Not because of any neglect of the young parents who lost their child. Let’s not judge them. They need prayers,love and support at this time. So if you want to question how a lightweight truck can cause that much devastation and damage? Let me give you that answer rather the people in the car had slowed to turn or not.. it was the driver of the truck not paying attention, and driving way to fast!

      • Shawntel on January 10, 2018 at 3:20 pm

        That’s right!! There is no time for these kind of comments thank you Kathie for respectfully closing this issue with your comment. Because that is my families child, so please pray for them and that is all. Lots of prayers.

      Not that you can really tell from the pics what’s in the car with it being so smashed but it looks to me there is a car seat in the rear passenger seat. Way to make it sound like it’s the parents fault their child was killed when you don’t even know for sure.

    There was a car seat. This isn’t the dads or moms fault. Their grieving can’t even say good bye to their child. Their child went to a different hospital. I hope the Redman guy gets what he deserves. Going so fast he feused to the the vehicle with the child in it and turned them around. And the person that ripped that child out the car. You were NOT an emergency responder. You shouldn’t of touched that baby. Moving that baby was the dumbest thing you could of done. I have 1 child and if anyone would of tried to play hero with the her I’d kill you. I live right there and seen the after math. I heard it happen. And for all you that say you don’t see a car seat. You don’t see alot of stuff. Just because you don’t see it don’t mean its not there. For fu*k sake stop and realize by saying that your accusing a dad and mom of killing their son.

      It is partly their fault. The vehicle should not have been on the road being operated by a unlicensed driver. That is a failure and gross negligence on their behalf. Driving is a privilege not a right.

    • Anonymous on January 11, 2018 at 10:51 am

      Why give grief to someone who was trying to help save the child’s life? Unless you can prove that the child’s death was caused by negligence on the so called “non emergency responder” then shut it!

    I hate to be that person who points out the negative when someone is facing tragedy but if the driver of the Accord had been obeying the law and not driving a vehicle as he is an unlicensed driver this all very well could have been avoided and that precious little boy could be at home snuggled up with his mom and dad. That doesn’t excuse the driver of the Ranger but still the driver of the Accord should not have been operating that vehicle.

      And there it is. There’s always that troll that says some rude, ignorant comment. The driver of the car was not at fault!! He lost his child!! What is wrong with u?? License or no license, he was turning into a private driveway which means the vehicle was almost at a stop or completely stopped. U must be related to the driver of the truck that was obviously at fault. Go sit down somewhere and keep your stupid opinion to yourself.

      • I'm still laughing on January 14, 2018 at 4:05 pm

        so because he lost his child he automatically wasnt at fault? You dont know squat either you idiots on here that are already putting either driver at fault dont know all the facts ffs

    To any and all persons implying that there was no car seat, please get your facts straight before you comment about things that you know nothing about! These people were family friends and they lost a 3 year old little boy. Their lives are forever changed. The baby WAS in a car seat. The pictures don’t show the full amount of damage done to the car or any of the passengers in the car. Please send prayers and healing thoughts instead of posting negative comments. None of you would ever want to feel the pain this family feels so think twice before making stupid comments.

  22. Parent on January 10, 2018 at 9:15 am

    With so many rear end accidents, follow these driving tips: when making turn, especially when not at a light or intersection, the driver behind you is not expecting you to turn. Drive defensively! Avoid the accident at all costs!
    1. Use your rear view mirror. Is anyone behind you?
    2. Pump your brake pedal so the driver behind you sees your brake lights flash
    3. Use your turn signal and put it on early before you actually stop to turn

    I’ve driven behind people on Three Notch with a 50 mph speed limit, and they hit the brakes to make a turn into a private driveway, no warning or turn signal. Anyone following reasonably close is going to plow into the back of them. You can’t control the person who is wrongly tailgating, so protect yourself. Drive defensively and avoid the accident.

    Looking at the photo looking into the backseat. It would not matter if he was or was not in a car seat. Look how the truck is sitting on top of the vehicle crushing in the passenger side of the back seat. There was no occupier space over there. So before people start judging if a car seat was used or not the space where it was located doesn’t exist. As some others of stated there is a photo of a car seat outside of the vehicle. So please don’t jump to conclusions unless you witnessed the crash.

  30. Not Needed on January 10, 2018 at 11:35 am

    Pay attention – this poor child hadn’t even started his life yet. He was violently denied his opportunity to grow up because Kyle Lee Akers Redman was not paying attention. It doesn’t matter why he wasn’t paying attention. It doesn’t matter what he was doing that was more important than a childs life. It matters to Damian Michael Sullivan whose voice has been silenced far too soon. Pray for Damian. Pray for Kyle, he needs all the prayers you can give.

  31. Keep the negative comments out of this on January 10, 2018 at 11:52 am

    My prayers are with the family but saying lock the driver of the truck up is unnecessary Kyle is a great guy with a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone and is actually one of my daughters godfathers (yes she has 2)…but it was an accident and unless you know the full story keep ur negative comments to yourself…a child lost his life send prayers for all involved….no one should have to go thru this… I can only imagine how bad Kyle feels about all of this…from my understanding I heard he hit black ice which cannot be avoided…kyle is an amazing guy and pays attention 100 when driving and doesn’t text and drive… This poor parents have to deal with the loss of their son and Kyle is probably a mess also because of this tragedy…my prayers go out to the family of Damian and Kyle

    I am appalled at the lack of compassion for the loss of a child and his family’s loss. My prayers go out to them. I hope they never see many of the comments written here because they do not need added grief about a car seat or not. The thing that strikes me the most are the folks keeping anonymous when they say evil comments. Trolls. To those claiming to be on scene, you should not be discussing this publicly. Most of all, the accident is being fully investigated and just so most of you decrying the lack of car seat; they don’t always save lives nor do airbags always save lives. Prayers to all involved and most of all, for that precious soul that is no longer here.

    Going through the comments, here is what we “know”
    1-there was no car seat
    2-there was a car seat
    3-there wasnt a car seat, it was actually a booster seat
    4-someone who isnt qualified, removed the child from the car
    5-an emt removed the child from the car while he was still in the car seat

    Do I need to continue. Amazing how many people “were there and know the facts”, and their “facts” directly contradict the “facts” of other people “who were there”…

    I find it very difficult to believe that so many people have such negative things to say about this accident. The only thing that should be said are deepest condolences to the family that lost their child and prayers for the ones that are recovering. I hope and pray that the family somehow heals from this lost. And one of the passengers is fighting for her life. People just piss me off. You have a negative comment, how about you keep it to yourself. And say a prayer instead.

    Maybe everyone should learn to put the damn cell phone down and leave it down while driving a vehicle of any kind. Which is more important, a phone call or a life? Just saying. Prayers for the family of the child that lost it’s life.

    My God how fast was the truck going, it practically went thru the trunk of car into the back seat.

    My heart aches with such tragedy. I can only pray for the rest of the passenger. I hope they can recover and get thru this. So sad

    The shoulders are big enough to make the turn and get off the road. I see a lot of bad driving daily, this could have bee been avoided if minor adjustments were made. This sucks. Prayers up.

    Apparently there was a booster seat, which is a car seat. Is it the correct type of car seat for a 3 yr old, No. There is no report as of yet as to the cause of the accident. Whether or not Mr. Sullivan has a license or not, would not of prevented this from happening. Lack of attention, medical emergency, black ice, etc….are all possibilities. It’s funny how people are so quick to judge and point fingers at both drivers. In all honesty, this could of happen to any of us! So, instead of you all making nasty comments to any of the people involved, send heartfelt thoughts and prayers to them!

    My prayers are with all involved in this unfortunate horrible crash. I can’t believe that so many people are willing to just pass judgement on the people involve in the crash. Especially the people who are trying to put blame on the parents of the young child who lost their life in this crash. I mean really people?!?!?! How can you honestly sit there and blame the folks who were ran into by the truck??…”they should’ve slowed down slower signal light on and pumped their brakes” to let the driver of the truck know that they were turning. How do you know that it didn’t happen just like that? Did you see what happened?? “There was no car seat” blah blah blah…….The truck hit black ice there was a lot of ice out there…….
    I have to say that if there was ice everywhere and the truck lost control because of it and hit the car I’m pretty sure that both vehicles would’ve went sliding down the road a bit instead of the truck driving into the back seat of the car! I mean the damn tires are literally sitting in the trunk of the car. Also, the short skid marks says that the brakes were slammed at the last moment which tells me that the driver wasn’t paying attention.

      Because the driver of the car did not have a license.

    You all appear to have elected to take the part of judge an jury. Hindsight is twenty twenty but the only comments here should be your sincere condolences to the child’s family.

  47. Bill on January 12, 2018 at 9:27 am

    Sorry, I’m not buying black ice in any way shape or form. Look at the roadway in those pictures, the only ice anywhere at all is on the shoulders. Otherwise great people get distracted and/or text. I know people do however wait til the last second, jab the brakes and make a turn. Which doesn’t remove the others driver duty to ensure they have enough room to avoid that other vehicle no matter what it does. If you cannot avoid them, your following distance was not reasonable.

    I moved to this community from Colorado three months ago and I am saddened at what I am finding out about my new home. I pray for that young couple because they will live in that hell forever wondering “what if” and no matter the circumstances I am sure they will feel guilt for not protecting their child, even if they could have done nothing differently. I pray for the man that struck them because unless he was deliberately trying to injure someone I am sure he is suffering for what he did. There is a reason it is called an accident. Imagine if it were you. As a person new to the community I would appeal to you to try to lift each other up in times of tragedy. What purpose do your insensitive comments serve? There but for the grace of God, it could have been any one of you and how would you feel to see comments such as you have made being directed at you? If you wouldn’t have the guts to say it to someone’s face, stop hiding behind “anonymous” and keep it to yourself. The problem with the internet is no one is filtered anymore and can just say what they want without thinking first. Please for the sake of polite society try to have some restraint. Words hurt. Treat others the way you would want to be treated.
