Preliminary investigation revealed a 2012 Ford Mustang and 2009 Nissan 370 Z were both traveling northbound on Maryland Route.  As the vehicles entered the intersection of Rousby Hall Road the Ford Mustang struck the Nissan 370 Z in the rear causing the Nissan to go off the roadway and into an embankment.  Once off the road the Nissan rolled and came to final rest on its roof.  After the collision the operator of the Ford Mustang, later identified as Lindsay Leanne Canter, 32 years old of Lexington Park, Maryland failed to remain on the scene of the collision.  The Mustang was located by members of Patrol Bureau and subsequently was stopped a short time later in close proximity to the crash scene.

The operator of the Nissan was identified as Ronald Joseph Ball, 32 years old of Huntingtown, Maryland was transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead by CMH ER Staff. 

At this time, this investigation is still on going.  Alcohol is being considered as a contributing factor to the collision.  If anyone has any information regarding this collision is being asked to contact Sgt. V. Bortchevsky of CRT at 410-535-2800 ext. 2540 or by e-mail:
