On June 3 at 7:10 in the morning, members of the Calvert County Sheriffs Office responded to Maryland Avenue in Port Republic for the report of a child pinned between two cars. Upon arrival, deputies found a 10-year-old boy had been run over by a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The Calvert County Sheriffs Office Crash Reconstruction Unit was called to the scene and investigation revealed that the 10 year old sustained fatal injuries when he was helping two adults push his mothers car backwards. The car was being pushed because the reverse feature in the transmission was not working and the car had stalled. The weight of the vehicle caused the child and two men to lose their footing in the gravel driveway. The child, Louis A. Gross, III, of Port Republic, was killed and one of the men was slightly injured.
