On July 29 at 3:42 a.m., a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt was traveling southbound in the 8800 block of Derby Court in Dentsville when the driver, Amber Marie Rose, 16, of Marbury, lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree. Rose was transported to Civista Medical Center where she was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. It does not appear Rose was wearing her seatbelt. Speed and alcohol are considered factors. The crash remains under investigation by PFC R. Taylor of the Traffic Operations Unit. This is the 24th fatal crash and it brings to 30 the number of people who have died in motor vehicle collisions in Charles County so far this year.
