Crofton motorist suffers life-threatening injuries in crash

A Crofton motorist suffered life-threatening injuries in a two-vehicle collision on Route 450 in Gambrills Tuesday evening, Anne Arundel County Police said in a prepared statement on Wednesday.

Spokesman Justin Mulcahy said that at 10:38 p.m., officers responded to a report of a collision on Route 450 near Hallmark Drive and found both vehicles blocking the westbound lane. Police said a preliminary investigation revealed that Daniel James Pfarr, 34, of Crofton was driving a 1999 Honda Accord eastbound when he lost control, crossed double yellow line and ventured onto the path of a 2012 Mazda 3, which was driven by a 17-year-old female from Gambrills.

Pfarr was transported by ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma, where he is listed with life-threatening injuries. The driver and an accompanying 17-year-old passenger of the Mazda were transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center. Both suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the Accord's speed could have been a factor in the collision and added that there was no evidence of alcohol by either driver. The case is still under investigation, police said.
