Lothian, MD – On Friday, Nov. 2 at approximately 4:57pm Anne Arundel County Police Department (AACPD) officers responded to a multi-vehicle crash on Southern Maryland Blvd (Route 4) at Lower Pindell Road in Lothian.

A Honda sedan driven by Diana Ruiz Luengas, 29 of Lothian, was northbound on Southern Maryland Boulevard attempting to turn left and cross over the southbound travel lanes onto Lower Pindell Road when it was struck by a Pontiac travelling south. The Pontiac, driven by Robert Michael Morris Jr, 24 of Portersville, PA, struck the Honda on the right rear door (passenger side) which then caused the Honda to spin and leave the roadway. 

Luengas sustained minor injuries. There were three small children in the rear seat of the Honda. The children—ages 3, 7 and 10—sustained severe injuries and were transported to an area hospital for treatment. Morris sustained very minor injuries.

The preliminary cause of the crash is the Honda failing to yield the right of way. The Traffic Safety Section is handing the investigation and will be reviewed by the States Attorney.
