One dead after Worcester County crash; another seriously injured

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. - A woman died, after police say she and another person were injured in a crash that happened in Worcester County.

The Berlin Police Department says on Sunday, just before 10:20 PM, officers responded to a crash that happened on Route 113 south, in Worcester County. 

According to the report, 73-year-old June Gravenor, of Newark, was driving a Kia Soul on Route 113 southbound. At that time, 19-year-old Cody Bunting, of Berlin, was reportedly driving a Jeep eastbound on Route 376. Authorities say Gravenor then struck the Jeep.

Law enforcement reports that the 73-year-old woman was taken to Atlantic General Hospital and later died at Shock Trauma. Bunting was apparently taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment after sustaining serious injuries.

Police say both drivers were wearing seat belts and alcohol is a factor on Bunting's part.

This crash remains under investigation by Berlin PD.
