Eastern Shore crash injures 3

By Erica Johnston


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.

What a citizen!

In his short life, Armand Jamar Cornish, has managed to father one child out of wedlock, incur some serious traffic charges, and is on probation for a criminal offense.

All this in 19 years.

Three outstanding, hard-working young men land in the hospital and all this reckless individual gets is a charge of trying to elude police? One of the victims is currently in the hospital fighting for his life with multiple injuries and a serious head injury that may take a long time for him to recover. I really hope Mr. Cormish gets locked up for a long time. As the previous comment stated, this young man already has a history, now he nearly claimed three lives- one that may be changed forever. Justice must be served!

In his short life, Armand Jamar Cornish, has managed to father one child, that we know of, out of wedlock, incur some serious traffic charges, and is on probation for a criminal offense.

All this in 19 years.

Except the reality is that the public record starts on his 18th birthday. His complete record is probably worse.

The second poster, Ms. Valentina Pereda, apparently knows the injured, innocent parties.

Like Ms. Pereda, I hope the injured recover, and like Ms. Pereda, I hope this thug predator is locked up for a long time.
