PRESTON, Md.- Maryland State Police are asking for the public's help as they continue to investigate a crash in Caroline County that claimed the life of a Preston man.

Police said that at around 5:30 p.m. Monday, troopers responded to a reported crash that had just occurred on Dover Bridge Road (MD Rt. 331) at Tanyard Road in Preston.

According to police, an investigation revealed that a 1996 Nissan 200SX was traveling southbound on Dover Bridge Road and approaching Poplar Neck Road when it crossed the center line and continued through the northbound lane. Police said the car then struck the ditch at Tanyard Road and continued across Tanyard Road, overturning in a farm field.

The car's operator and sole occupant, 37-year-old Jan H. R. Dekker of Preston, was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Tuesday afternoon, troopers with the MSP Easton Barrack said they are seeking information from the public concerning an older model Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was seen in the area of MD Rt. 331 and the Preston area during the time frame of the crash. The car has been described as a white 2-door passenger car with the original style Maryland license plates. 

Any person who may have seen this car or may have information pertaining to it is asked to contact Tfc. Charles Gore at the MSP Easton Barrack at (410) 819-4747 or at charles.gore@maryland.gov.
