LEONARDTOWN, Md. (June 2, 2016)—A Chaptico man who was injured in a two vehicle crash on Monday has passed away. Bryce Hurry succumbed to his injuries during treatment at Prince George's Hospital on Tuesday.
On Monday, May 30, at approximately 2:22 p.m., deputies were dispatched to a serious motor vehicle collision on Mechanicsville Road in the area of Gander Court. Units arrived on scene to find two vehicles involved in a head-on style collision. Due to the severity of injuries, the Collision Reconstruction Unit was requested.
A preliminary investigation determined a 2013 Hyundai Accent, operated by Kellie Murphy, age 19, of Mechanicsville, was traveling northbound on Mechanicsville Road, when for unknown reasons the vehicle crossed the center line and struck a 2010 Toyota Sienna, operated by Joseph Thomas, age 72, of Mechanicsville. The Hyundai was occupied by two other passengers, Bryce Hurry, age 20, of Chaptico, and Jeffrey Townsend, age 18, of Mechanicsville. The Toyota was occupied by one passenger, Ann Thomas, age 68, of Mechanicsville. At this time, it is believed the primary cause of the collision is interference from a passenger in the Hyundai.
Both operators and all passengers were transported to area hospitals for treatment. Bryce Hurry was initially listed in critical condition.
