UPDATE Tuesday, Oct. 16

Dunkirk, MD – On Oct. 13 at 10:23 p.m., units with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the area of Route 4 and Route 260 for a personal injury accident that was reported serious.  Upon arrival units found one vehicle completely engulfed in flames and the other vehicle was only a few feet away.  Several vehicles pulled over and citizens were rendering aid before Sheriff’s Office units arrived.  The citizens were able to remove all occupants from both vehicles and pulled them safely to the center median where they continued to render aid until EMS arrived.

The investigation determined that a minivan, operated by Adrienn Eva Raschka, 33, was traveling southbound in the number 1 lane of northbound Route 4.  The minivan struck a Nissan SUV operated by Tiye Camille Ray-Drewrey, 47, that was traveling northbound on Route 4 in the number 1 lane. The collision caused the minivan to catch fire. 
It was discovered that Raschka was headed south from Annapolis and made a wrong turn, but it is unknown where she entered on to Route 4. Charges are pending. In the minivan with Raschka was her infant son. The child was transported to Children’s Hospital and Raschka was transported to Med-Star, both with non-life threatening injuries. In the Nissan, the driver Ray-Drewrey was transported by air by MSP Trooper 2 to PG Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The front seat passenger of the Nissan Julia Harvey Moore, 47, was transported by ground to PG Hospital.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to call Deputy Freeland at 410-535-2800.
