Prior to the arrival of the deputies, one of the drivers advised the Calvert Control Center that one of the patients might be on a controlled dangerous substance and was attempting to fight with bystanders.

It was also learned that just prior to this accident Mr. Marlowe forced another vehicle driven by Bradley Krolczyk, 45, of Prince Frederick, off of the roadway.

Mr. Aleman and a Passenger identified as Maria Elena Arias, 68, of Port Republic, were both transported to Calvert Health Medical Center via ambulance for treatment for minor injuries. A passenger in the vehicle with Mr. Marlow, Christopher DeSousa, 24, of Chesapeake Beach, was arrested for possession of PCP and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center. A second passenger in the vehicle, Anthony Wimer, 27, of North Beach, is also pending charges for possession of PCP in this case.

This accident is still under investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Dep. Sampson at 410-535-2800 or Bruce.Sampson@calvertcountymd.gov.

    Some, after they witness an auto accident, get the hell scared out of them and start riding public transportation, which is not something that needs to be corrected. Based on my observations, pedestrians are prepared for drivers, they expect drivers, but its not the other way around. Drivers don’t expect pedestrians. In Charles, Calvert, StM and PG, pedestrians should be expected. There are wrong and unmet expectations. Expect pedestrians. Your license and expectations, please, I mean, your license & registration, please.
