Police investigating Charlotte Hall crash that sent two to the trauma center

News Release, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office

On December 7, 2019, at approximately 11:08 a.m., deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 38100 block of Golden Beach Road in Charlotte Hall, for the reported motor vehicle collision.

Deputies arrived on scene and located a Ford F-150 and a Chevrolet Cobalt in the roadway.  The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Accident Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and continued the investigation.

The preliminary investigation determined the Ford F-150 operated by Paul Andrew Hamby, age 55 of Mechanicsville, was traveling northbound on Golden Beach Road, when the Chevrolet Cobalt, operated by Noah Andrew Stathers, age 19 of Mechanicsville, entered the roadway.

Stathers attempted to make a left-hand turn onto Golden Beach Road and was struck by the Ford F-150.  Stathers and a juvenile front-seat passenger were transported via helicopter to area trauma centers with incapacitating injuries. Hamby was not transported to a medical facility from the scene.

At this time, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact Deputy Shawn Shelko at (301) 475-4200 extension *8147 or by email at Shawn.Shelko@stmarysmd.com.

All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community.
