UPDATE 3/6/2023: On March 5, 2023, at approximately 4:40 p.m., members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division and Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the intersection of Bayside Road (MD Route 261) and Harbor Road in Chesapeake Beach, for a serious motor vehicle collision.

Upon arrival, units located a passenger car and a personal mobility scooter that were involved in a crash.

Preliminary investigation revealed Christopher C. Carryington, 74 of North Beach, was operating his mobility scooter in the crosswalk across Bayside Road when he was struck by a 2001 Honda Accord, operated by Kathy Ann Jones, 67 of Owings, who was turning left onto SB Bayside Road when the collision occurred.
