DENTON, Md.- Maryland State Police are investigating a deadly three-car crash in Caroline County.

The accident near New Bridge and Asbury roads in Denton killed one woman and sent three other people to shock trauma.

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
