Eastern Shore crash injures 3
Three Washington-area residents were among six people injured Sunday when a motorist who was fleeing from police crashed into another car on the Eastern Shore, Maryland state police said.
The area residents, all in the car that was struck, were identified as Martin Portillo-Coreas, 33, of Laurel, and his passengers, Ricardo Lopez, 23, and Enrique Ayala, 20, of the District, police said. Police said they believed Ayala was critically injured.
Police said the pursuit, in Dorchester County, started around 4:30 a.m. after police spotted a vehicle in St. Michaels that was being driven erratically. A state trooper stopped the vehicle and asked its driver to step from the vehicle, police said. But, police said, he drove away, setting off a chase.
According to police, the collision with the Washington area residents’ vehicle occurred east of the Route 50 bridge in Cambridge.
They said the driver and two passengers in the fleeing car, all from Cambridge, were also injured.
Police said Armand J. Cornish, 19, of Cambridge, was charged in a warrant with trying to elude police by failing to stop and with other vehicle offenses.
