Four people were injured in a Maryland car accident in Charles County the afternoon of Thursday, March 28. A two-year-old girl involved in the accident sustained life-threatening injuries.
According to Maryland State Police from the La Plata Barrack, the Maryland auto accident occurred just before 1:00 p.m. in Newburg.
Amanda Marie Bradshaw, age 24 and a resident of Cobb Island, was driving a red 2000 Mercury Sable headed westbound along Rock Point Road when the accident happened.
Just after she passed the intersection for Cobb Island Road, Bradshaw apparently lost control of her vehicle, crossed the double yellow line and skidded into oncoming traffic in the eastbound lanes of the road.
She crashed head-on into an eastbound green 2010 Toyota Camry driven by 72-year-old Connie Miller, also of Cobb Island.
Bradshaw had with her two young girls, ages two and one. The 2two-year-old was rushed via helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Washington DC with life-threatening injuries.
Bradshaw and the one-year-old were both taken by helicopter to Washington Hospital Center with injuries that were not considered life threatening.
Miller also suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to Civista Medical Center. Her passenger, 72-year-old Roger Ann Miller of Cobb Island, was treated at the scene and released. He declined transport to any hospital.
It is still unclear what caused Bradshaw to lose control of her vehicle. At this point Maryland State Police are conducting a thorough investigation into the Maryland car accident. They say no charges will be made until the investigation is complete.
Anyone with information regarding the crash is asked to call Senior Trooper Zimmerman at 301-392-1231.
