May 11, 2018

A 12-year-old Lusby girl succumbed on Friday, May 11, 2018, from injuries suffered in a motor vehicle crash on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

On May 1, 2018 at 6:50 a.m., the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and emergency personnel responded to the area of Indian Bridge Road and Park Drive in Great Mills for the report of a single-vehicle collision.

Upon arrival, units located a single vehicle off the roadway which had struck an embankment, a mailbox and street signs. The operator of the vehicle, Kelly Rapert, 57 of Lusby, was found to have incapacitating injuries and was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown, while a juvenile passenger, 12-year-old Madison Clare Curran of Lusby, suffered severe incapacitating injuries and was eventually transported to Georgetown University Hospital.

Initial investigation revealed the vehicle, a 2009 Honda Accord, was traveling southbound on Indian Bridge Road when for unknown reasons the vehicle left the roadway, struck an embankment and a mailbox. The vehicle continued to travel across Park Drive and struck several street signs before coming to a stop.

The juvenile passenger was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, transferred to Children’s Hospital and then transferred to Georgetown University Hospital due to the severity of the injuries sustained.

On Friday, May 11, 2018, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office was notified that the juvenile passenger had succumbed to her injuries at 3:37 p.m.

At this time, speed, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in this collision. Witnesses to the collision are asked to contact Cpl. Brian Connelly #151 from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Reconstruction Unit at 301-475-4200, ext. *8031 or by email at Brian.Connelly@stmarysmd.com

    We cannot blame God for these tragedies. Man broke the covenant, with the help of a woman. Our world is plagued with sin. But find peace knowing this little girl is held the loving arms of God until eternity. Rest in peace with Jesus little one.

    Check the phone records.

    Was this person on their phone?

    Anytime I see “left the road for unknown reasons,” I think distracted driver.

    Cars again! As long as cars are readily available to the public, people will continue to be killed by them

    Can you all stop with the religious crap? It really does nothing for anybody. Maryland “drivers” are among the worst because the vast majority seem to believe that the damn roads are race tracks and the cops are never around to catch any of them blazing through neighborhoods and roads.
