2 dead after crash in Maryland

By Washington Post editors

Police in Maryland are looking for witnesses to a two-car collision in Queen Anne's County in which two men died.

According to a preliminary investigation, the crash occurred around 8 a.m. Sunday after the driver of a BMW lost control of his car and crossed a double yellow line, hitting another vehicle. The driver of the BMW, 41-year-old Victor A. Smith of Annapolis, survived, but two of his passengers were killed. The other driver was being treated for her injuries, as was Smith. No one in the BMW was wearing a seat belt.

Police say Smith smelled of alcohol, and investigators also believe he was speeding. Investigators now want to interview additional witnesses in the case.

If this 41 year old was speeding and under the influence trying to show off his BMW to his friends then he should face vehicular manslaughter charges.
You're 41...why would you drive impaired at all? Grow up!
