Man charged with DUI in multiple hit-and-run crashes in Queen Anne’s County near the Bay Bridge

Maryland State Police have formally charged a man who was arrested Thursday in connection with multiple hit-and-run crashes in just a matter of minutes in Queen Anne’s County.

At around 11:40 a.m. on Thursday, troopers from the Maryland State Police Centreville responded to a report of a hit-and-run crash along Route 50 East just after the exit for the Bay Bridge.

According to a preliminary investigation, Tettimer, who was driving a white Mercury sedan, had struck a guardrail on the Bay Bridge before it struck a tractor-trailer on eastbound Route 50 by Thompson Creek Road.

Tettimer continued to drive east on Route 50 as troopers attempted to conduct a traffic stop of his vehicle, according to police.

Tettimer next struck a Honda CRV and a Chevy Tahoe. His vehicle eventually experienced mechanical failure and came to rest along the shoulder of Route 50 just prior to Maryland Route 213, according to police.

He was transported by ambulance to University of Maryland Shore Medical Center in Easton for treatment of his injuries. Tettimer is now being held without bond in the Queen Anne’s County Detention Center.

No other injuries were reported as a result of this incident. Route 50 just prior to Route 213 was partially closed briefly following the crashes.

The case remains under investigation.
