A 7-year-old Waldorf girl was killed and three adults were injured in a three-car, alcohol-involved collision in Charles County, according to Maryland State Police.
State troopers from the La Plata barrack first responded to northbound Route 210 near Lewis Place about 3:20 p.m. for reports of a motor vehicle accident.
The girl, Jan-nae Alicia Woodard, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
An investigation showed that Jackson Tutt, 73, of Fort Washington, was driving a green 1995 Chevrolet Tahoe south on Route 210 when the vehicle passed through the median of the roadway and into the left side of a gray 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer being driven north on the road by William Green, 60, of Indian Head.
Tutt's Tahoe then sideswiped a silver 2003 Nissan Altima, also traveling north, driven by Marquetta Rochelle McGee, 36, of Waldorf. Jan-nae Woodard was a passenger in the Nissan, police said.
McGee was transported by helicopter to Prince George's Shock Trauma with life-threatening injuries, police said.
Tutt, who sustained non-life-threatening injuries, was also transported by helicopter to Prince George's Shock Trauma, police said.
Green was uninjured, but an unidentified female passenger in his vehicle was taken to Fort Washington Hospital, police said.
An investigation of the crash showed alcohol was a factor, police said.
No further details were immediately available.
