CHESTER, Md - Maryland State Police say two people from Salisbury are dead following a head-on crash that happened Sunday night on Route 50 in Queen Anne's County.

Police identified the two deceased Monday as 58-year-old Sibasish Ghosh and 54-year-old Shampa Ghosh, both of Salisbury.

Troopers with the Centreville State Police Barracks said that at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, 25-year-old Richard Shebovsky, with a last known address in Chester, Md., was driving a Toyota Sienna in the wrong direction on U.S. Route 50 in the area of the Kent Narrows Bridge. Police said that is when it struck a Mitsubishi Lancer head-on, just west of the bridge.

Troopers said once they arrived on the scene, the Toyota was fully engulfed in flames. The Queen Anne's Fire Department was called and responded to handle the fire.

Police said Sibasish Ghosh was the driver of the Mitsubishi, and Shampa Ghosh was the passenger. Both were pronounced dead at the scene by Queen Anne's County emergency medical personnel, according to authorities. Both of the victims' remains were taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for autopsies.

Police said Shebovsky was transported by Maryland State Police Aviation Division to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment.

The crash is still under investigation.
