Published:

Maryland State Police (MSP) are investigating a crash that claimed the life of a truck driver in Prince George’s County this week.

The crash occurred shortly before 5:30 a.m. on March 14 in Beltsville, Maryland.

Troopers with the Maryland State Police College Park Barrack responded to a multi-vehicle crash on I-95 at MD Route 212.

New Jersey-based truck driver Delando Woody, 56, was northbound on I-95 when the crash occurred.

From MSP:

The preliminary investigation indicates the driver of a Dodge Charger traveling southbound on I-95 struck the Toyota, causing the truck to overturn into the median. Investigators believe the Charger crossed over the median and was struck by a tractor trailer traveling northbound on I-95.

Woody died at the scene.

Two people inside the Toyota pickup, Carlos Diaz Agustin, 22, and Anner Ramundo, 43, were injured and transported to a nearby hospital.

The Dodge Charger driver, Troy Myers, 45, was also hospitalized with injuries.

The crash partially closed I-95 for seven hours.

Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation and consultation with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office, according to MSP.
