 WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. - Maryland State Police are investigating two alcohol-related crashes Saturday evening in Worcester County.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., troopers responded to the area of southbound Rt. 113 in the area of Jarvis road for a hit-and-run crash. Police determined that a red 1999 GMC pickup truck was traveling southbound when it traveled out of its lane, hitting a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV. Troopers say the driver of the truck, later identified as Pedro Gallardo-Trinidad, 53, of Berlin, then failed to stop and remain at the scene of the crash.

Troopers say that witnesses who observed the collision were able to catch up to the GMC and directed the driver to pull over onto the shoulder and wait for police.

During the investigation, troopers detected the strong odor of alcohol on Gallardo-Trinidad's breath. After field sobriety tests, he was arrested and charged with DUI and charges related to the crash.

At approximately 11:32 p.m., troopers from the Berlin Barrack responded to the area of Rt. 12 in the area of C Road for a single vehicle crash.

Troopers say a tan 2006 Ford Mustang operated by Paul Kevin Hudson Jr. of Newark, Md. was traveling southbound on that road when he left the right side of the road and crashed into a ditch.

Troopers detected a strong odor of an alcohol beverage and arrested Hudson for driving under the influence of alcohol after he failed a field sobriety test.

He was charged with DUI and related charges for the crash.

No one was injured in either crash.
