A Clarksburg woman was killed, and five other people were injured as a result of a head-on collision in Boyds last night.
According to Montgomery County Police, on Tuesday, August 4, at 7:03 pm, the 9-1-1 center received a call for a serious collision on Darnestown Road at Whites Ferry Road. Police officers and Fire/Rescue personnel responded and found two vehicles carrying a total of six people that had been involved in a collision.
According to police, the preliminary investigation has revealed that a silver, 2003, Chevrolet S10 Trailblazer with three occupants was traveling inbound towards Rockville on Darnestown Road approaching the Whites Ferry Road intersection. At the same time the silver, 2008, Honda Accord, also with three occupants, was traveling outbound on Darnestown Road. For reasons under investigation, the Trailblazer crossed the center line on the curve in the road, struck the Accord, left the road, and struck a tree.
Police say two of the passengers of the Trailblazer, identified as Tiffany Nicole Bein, 23, of the 12800 block of Shawnee Lane in Clarksburg, and John Gilbert Reyes, 23, of the 12800 block of Locbury Circle in Germantown, were ejected from the Trailblazer. Bein was transported to Suburban Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. Reyes remains in critical condition after being transported by a Maryland State Police helicopter to Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
The driver of the Trailblazer, identified as Torray James Jr., 26, of the 5700 block of Trailview Court in Baltimore, was not ejected, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and was transported to Suburban Hospital. Alcohol is a possible contributing factor in this fatal collision.
The driver of the Honda, Janet Yeboah, 47, of Germantown and the front seat passenger, Sylvester Yeboah, 31, of Germantown, were transported to Shady Grove Hospital with minor injuries. The rear seat passenger, Drew Brown, 18, was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital with minor injuries.
Route 28 was closed for eight-and-half hours as detectives from the Montgomery County Collision Reconstruction Unit investigated the crash. While police are saying that alcohol may have been a factor in this crash, no charges have been filed.
