PRINCE FREDERICK, Md.—The Maryland State Police are reporting the death of Amanda Kirk, 26, of Edgewater, in a single vehicle accident early this morning on Route 4 at Ponds Wood Road in Huntingtown, Calvert County. A two-year-old child, a passenger, and William Sullivan, 28, of Hollywood, the driver of the vehicle, were flown to a hospital. No other people were involved in the accident.

As the vehicle approached Ponds Wood Road, the driver lost control and struck the cement median dividing the Ponds Wood Road turn lane from Rt. 4. The vehicle subsequently struck the traffic signal pole and came to rest in the northbound lanes of Rt. 4. No other vehicles were involved.

Passenger Kirk died as a result of her injuries. The other passenger, age 2, was flown to Children's Hospital by Maryland State Police Trooper 7 with injuries. The driver was checked by medical personnel at the scene and was transported with the child.

Troopers from the Maryland State Police CRASH Team responded to the scene to reconstruct the accident. Personnel from Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and the Calvert County Sheriff's Department assisted at the scene.
