Synopsis:

On October 27, 2010, at approximately 7:22 p.m., officers from the Southern District responded to a report of a serious traffic crash that had occurred on Shore Drive near the intersection with Glenarm Road in Edgewater.

Upon arrival, officers located a green 2000 Chevrolet Camaro resting on its roof on Shore Drive just north of the intersection with Glenarm Road. Three subjects were identified at the scene as occupants of the vehicle. The driver was found pinned inside the wreckage in the driver’s seat, the back seat passenger was entrapped in the vehicle and the front seat passenger was discovered outside of the vehicle. Members of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department were also dispatched to the scene of the crash and rendered aid to the occupants of the Chevrolet.  The occupants of the vehicle were transported via helicopter to the University of Maryland Hospital Center for treatment.

Members of the Traffic Safety Section were notified and responded to the scene to assume responsibility of the investigation.

The vehicle then traveled off of the west side of the roadway and into the yard of a residence on Shore Drive, rolled off the embankment and came to rest on its roof.

Preliminary information indicates that drugs and/or alcohol, speed and driver error may have been contributing factors in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
