HEBRON, Md.- Maryland State Police say a woman is dead following a single-car accident that occurred Monday morning in Hebron.

The incident happened shortly after 9 a.m. Police said 45-year-old Sheila Lowery Potter of Easton was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Impala westbound on Ocean Gateway (U.S. Route 50), in the area of Old Railroad Road, when the car crossed the center grassy median onto eastbound Ocean Gateway. Investigators said the car then continued across both travel lanes and struck a utility pole at the intersection of Old Railroad Road and Ocean Gateway. It then came to rest on its side.
