Investigation revealed Denis Gerald Tri, age 37, of Solomon's, Maryland was operating a 1996 Lexis S30 Northbound when he lost control of his vehicle on the ice covered roadway, crossed the center line, and was struck by a 1986 Dodge, operating southbound, by Charles D. Woodburn, of Leonardtown, Maryland.
