Posted: Updated:

MARION STATION, Md. – A teenager was killed and her mother critically injured when their vehicle was struck from behind this afternoon in Somerset County.

Maryland State Police say Patricia Joyner, 38, of Crisfield, and her 15-year-old daughter, Andrea, were waiting to make a left turn into a driveway off of Northbound Route 413, near Lovers Lane, just after 4 p.m. when the accident occurred.

State Police say a truck failed to stop and struck Joyner's car from behind, pushing it into the Southbound lane and into the path of a third car traveling southbound.

Andrea Joyner was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center by ambulance where she was later pronounced dead.

Patricia Joyner was also transported to PRMC and then flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

The driver of the truck was identified as Christopher Garcia, 22, of North Bergen New Jersey. He along with the passenger, Romairo T. Shuler, 29, of Salisbury, were both treated and released at PRMC. 

The driver of the third vehicle, Rosario J. Barrett, 73, of Marion, was also treated for non-life threatening injuries at PRMC.

The Maryland State Police Crash Team and the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division are investigating the crash and say alcohol does not appear to be a factor at this time.

The Crash Team is conducting a detailed reconstruction of the crash and upon completion of the investigation, their report will be forwarded to the Somerset County State's Attorney's Office for review regarding charges to be filed. 

No charges have been filed at this time.
