SALISBURY, MD. – A motorist now charged with DWI caused a wreck in Salisbury, Md., say Maryland State Police, that injured an innocent motorist that was hit by the inebriated at-fault driver. This wasn’t the first rodeo in DWI court for the driver as he has been there before.

Police report that on Feb. 5, 2019 at 4:17 pm, Troopers from the Salisbury Barrack responded to Mount Hermon Rd at Phillip Morris Dr. Salisbury Md., for the report of a two-vehicle accident. 

Responding troopers observed a red Chevrolet Silverado and a black Chevrolet Tahoe in the middle of the roadway with obvious damage to both vehicles.

The driver of a 2013 Chevy Silverado, identified as Fulton Knight Singleton Jr., 72, of 32733 Johnson Road, Salisbury, Md., was traveling eastbound on Mt Hermon Rd., west of Phillip Morris Dr. when he struck the rear of a Chevy Tahoe being operated by Brian L. Waters, which was stopped with traffic on Mt Hermon Rd. 

Police say that both vehicles were disabled due to the collision.

Police report that Trooper First Class W. Shelter determined that Singleton was operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol and police say that he was placed under arrest for DUI and transported to the Salisbury Barrack for processing.

Singleton was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired by alcohol, negligent driving, failure to control speed to avoid a collision, and his license was confiscated prior to being subsequently released from the barrack to a family member. 

Waters was transported to PRMC for non-life-threatening injuries.

  • Singleton was arrested for DWI by Maryland State Trooper Oborokumo on Dec. 15, 2006 as he operated a Chevy on College Ave. at Rt. 12.  Singleton got a plea deal from the Wicomico County States Attorney on Feb. 28, 2007. THE DEAL: In return for pleading guilty, Singleton was given a verdict of Probation Before Judgment with zero jail time and a fine of $250.
  • With an arrest for DWI by Maryland State Trooper M. Reisenweber on July 28, 2000, when operating a 1995 Honda on Coastal Highway at 139th Street in Ocean City, Md., Singleton entered a guilty plea on Dec. 12, 2000. Court records do not reflect any fine or jail time as part of the plea deal with the Worcester County States Attorney.
