The Independent Investigations Division (IID) of the Maryland Office of the Attorney General has made public the body-worn camera footage from a fatal police chase that occurred on Monday, May 13. The chase started in Calvert County and concluded in Anne Arundel County.

In the early morning of Monday, Calvert County Sheriff’s deputies were investigating multiple vehicle break-ins in the Huntingtown area. During their investigation, deputies identified a suspicious vehicle believed to be linked to the break-ins. Around 5:35 a.m., they attempted to pull over the car on Plum Point Road and Ridge Road, but the driver did not comply.

The pursuit extended for about 25 miles into Anne Arundel County, where the fleeing car collided with a pickup truck at the intersection of Birdsville Road and Solomons Island Road in Harwood. The impact of the crash resulted in non-life-threatening injuries to the driver of the pickup truck, who was subsequently hospitalized.

Tragically, the front seat passenger of the car, a juvenile female, was pronounced dead at the hospital. The car’s driver sustained critical injuries, while another passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The release of the body-worn camera footage aims to provide transparency regarding the events leading up to the tragic incident.
