Lothian, MD – On Nov. 3 at approximately 1:45p.m., officers responded to the report of a two-vehicle crash on southbound Southern Maryland Boulevard (Route 4) at Fishers Station Road in Lothian.  A 2000 Chrysler 300 driven by Sharon Marie Alderson, 55 of Lothian, was turning left from the stop sign on southbound Fisher’s Station Road when it crossed the northbound lanes of Route 4, continued forward into the southbound travel lanes and stopped. A Ford F-150 pickup driven by Troy T. Wade Jr., 19 of St. Leonard, was traveling southbound on Route 4, struck the passenger side of the Chrysler perpendicularly before ending up in the woods. 

Alderson, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision, was declared dead at the scene by fire department personnel and taken to the Medical Examiner’s office in Baltimore for the autopsy.  Wade received only minor injuries and was taken to Calvert Memorial hospital for treatment.  

The preliminary cause of the crash is a failure of the Chrysler to yield right of way when entering a thru highway from a stop sign. There is no indication that alcohol contributed to the crash though speed and prescription drug use are being investigated.

Traffic Safety is handling the investigation and any charges are pending review by the States Attorney.
