BERLIN, Md. – Maryland State Police are investigating an accident that left one person dead Thursday morning.

Officers have identified the victim as Donna Clarke of Berlin.

The Berlin Fire Company was dispatched to U.S. Route 50 in the area of Old Ocean City Road at 8:07 a.m., according to troopers.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that Clarke was driving a 2008 Volvo C70 westbound on Maryland Route 346 crossing Route 50 eastbound when she failed to yield the right of way to a vehicle traveling eastbound on Route 50. Police say that vehicle was a 2010 Mazda SUV driven by Lauren King of Salisbury.

Upon arrival, responding crews discovered two vehicles with extensive damage and one seemingly unresponsive victim partially trapped in one of the vehicles, later identified as Clarke.

She was extricated and then flown by a Maryland State Police Aviation Helicopter to Atlantic General Hospital, police say. Clarke was pronounced dead on arrival after going into cardiac arrest. It is unknown whether she died on the scene or en route to the hospital.

King was also taken to the hospital with injuries. Her condition is unknown at this time.

Police shut down the eastbound lanes of Route 50 and diverted traffic onto Old Ocean City Road following the crash.
