CAROLINE COUNTY, Md.- Maryland State Police are investigating a late Saturday night crash that killed an 83-year-old Harmony man.

Police say shortly before 11 p.m., troopers were dispatched to help find Richard Clarence Boschi. Boschi suffered from dementia and had walked away from his home on Harmony Road.

Troopers say when they arrived to Harmony and Nagel roads, they spotted Boschi standing on the northbound side of the road. At the same time, 25-year-old Joshua Michael Stoner was driving north up Harmony Road.

Police say Stoner began driving partially on the shoulder due to seeing the Maryland State Police trooper with its emergency lights on. Troopers say that after driving a short distance, Stoner struck Boschi.

Police say Boschi was pronounced dead there and Stoner remained on the scene. Police are still investigating the incident.
