2 Killed in Easton Car Crash

Posted:

EASTON, Md.- Authorities say two people were killed Thursday after their car crashed along the westbound lane of Ocean Gateway (Route 50), near the area of Easton High School.

Easton police said that just after 1:30 p.m. Thursday, emergency personnel were dispatched to Ocean Gateway for a reported single-vehicle crash.

According to police, a preliminary investigation reveals that a 2005 Toyota Camry was traveling west along Ocean Gateway. Witnesses reported that they observed the Toyota weaving before it drove off the road into the ditch. Police said the Toyota then struck a cement culvert, which caused it to overturn into an adjacent embankment before coming to rest along the side of the highway. Investigators said that while the Toyota overturned, its passenger was ejected onto the side of the road as well.

The driver of the Toyota, an 84-year-old man from Laurel, Md., was pronounced dead on the scene. The passenger, an 82-year-old woman, also from Laurel, was transported to Memorial Hospital of Easton where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Police have not yet released the victims' identities.

Witnesses to this crash are encouraged to contact Pfc. Heather Hanson of the Easton Police Department at (410) 822-1111.
