Update: 5 People, 2 Children Sent to Hospital After Crash in Berlin

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md. - Five people were taken to the hospital early Tuesday morning in Berlin, Md., following a two-car crash on Route 50, according to Maryland State Police.

The crash happened around 12:30am at the intersection of westbound Route 50 and Whaleysville Road (Rt. 610). Troopers said when they arrived on scene, a 2003 Chevy Suburban was overturned in the intersection. 

According to a preliminary investigation, police said 20-year-old Esperanta Pierre, of Seaford, Del., was driving the Suburban when she sped through the crossover, causing her to drive off the road, hit the stop sign at the intersection, drive into the on-coming traffic and hitting a 1997 Honda Civic. 

24-year-old Christopher Beauford, of Delmar, Del., was the driver of the Civic, police said. He and a woman in his front seat, 27-year-old Dasia Banks, of Salisbury, Md. were injured. Two children who were in the backseat of the Civic, ages 3 years and 9 months old, were thrown from the car, but police said the car seats "did what they're supposed to do," and possibly saved their lives. All four people in the Civic as well as Pierre were taken to PRMC with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said Pierre was driving with a learner's permit through Delaware and did not have any supervision with her at the time of the crash. Pierre was issued several citations including negligent driving, failing to stop at a stop sign, speed greater than reasonable, failure to yield to the right of way, and driving on a learner's permit without supervision.
