JAN. 23, 2013 — According to Calvert County, Md. Sheriff’s Department, on January 22 at approximately 11:16 p.m. members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Team responded to Lower Marlboro Road and Academy Drive in Owings for the report of a vehicle crash with an ejection.  Upon their arrival, they located a 2000 Ford Ranger pick-up truck in the yard of a residence located on Lower Marlboro Road.
Through the on scene investigation it was determined the operator of the vehicle, Arian Leigh Howard, 23 of Anne Arundel County, was traveling westbound on Lower Marlboro Road in the area of Academy Drive.  As the vehicle entered into the curve, the driver lost control for an unknown reason, and the vehicle crossed the double yellow line from the eastbound lane and went off the roadway and became airborne.  The vehicle landed and rolled over several times.
During the roll over the passenger of the vehicle, Mark Ellis Grace III, 25 of Owings, was ejected from the vehicle and continued to slide through the yard and came to rest against a tree.  Grace was transported from the scene to Calvert Memorial Hospital and C.P.R. was in progress.  Grace was later transported to Baltimore Shock Trauma, where he died.  Howard was transported to Prince George’s Hospital Center.  At this time it is believed alcohol, speed and driver error are all contributing factors involved with this crash.  The crash is being investigated by the Crash Reconstruction Team.
