PRESTON, Md. - Amy and Trey Welch of Preston live in the neighborhood right across from the intersection of Route 331 and Tanyard Road where 37-year-old Jan Dekker of Preston died in a car crash Monday.

Maryland State Police are looking to question the driver of a white Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the Welch's say they were driving behind that car moments after the crash occurred.

"The way it was driving, it cut four cars off and it seemed like they were trying to get away from something," said Trey Welch.

It didn't dawn on the couple that the car may have been involved in the crash until they saw a Facebook post from WBOC.

"You guys posted an update on the crash and we noticed Police were looking for a White Monte Carlo and immediately we knew we were behind it on Monday," said Trey Welch.

His wife, Amy called MSP and she says the driver appeared to be a woman.

"It looked like a woman behind the wheel, they had long straight hair," said Amy Welch.

Police are not charging the driver of the white Monte Carlo, but for now they want to question that person in hopes of shedding light on what may have caused this fatal accident.

    In a plan approved by the legislature, full-time minimum-wage workers in Maryland will ultimately make about $875 less annually than they would have under the governor's proposed timetable, an economic analyst said. Legislators voted last week to have Maryland's minimum wage reach $10.10 an hour by July 2018, whereas Gov. Martin O'Malley originally wanted it to reach that amount by July 2016.More
