Preliminary investigation revealed a 2013 Chevy Sonic was traveling Southbound on Solomons Island Road in the area of Radio Drive.  The vehicle was in the right turn lane for West Dares Beach Road.  Traffic in Lanes 1 and 2 were both stopped when a 14 year old female juvenile attempted to cross all lanes of traffic from the North Side of Solomons Island Road.  The juvenile was struck by the Chevy Sonic when she entered the turn lane. The juvenile impacted the 2013 Chevy Sonic on the driver’s side front panel.  The juvenile sustained critical injuries and was transported to Johns Hopkins Medical Center by the Maryland State Police Aviation Unit. 

    The 2013 Chevy Sonic was operated by Tami M. McDowell, a 39 year old female of Prince Frederick. McDowell was uninjured and remained on the scene to be interviewed by Sheriff’s Office personnel. There is no indication that speed or driver error contributed to this crash.
