MSP Investigate Deadly Crash In Kent County

Posted: Updated:

MILLINGTON, Md. - Maryland State Police say they are investigating a deadly crash in Kent County.

According to reports, Adam Hughes, 25, of Delaware, refused to stop for police in Delaware and was killed early this morning when he apparently lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a vacant house in Kent County. Police say he was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred near the intersection of Rt. 291 and Crane Street, in Millington. His body will reportedly be taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.

Police say shortly after 2:00 AM this morning, Maryland State Police at the Centreville Barrack were notified by Kent County central dispatch of a single vehicle crash that occurred in Millington. Responding troopers reportedly found Delaware police already on the scene where a 2004 Saturn SUV had crashed into a vacant house. Hughes was allegedly the only occupant of the vehicle.

Maryland State Police say they learned the driver had been seen driving erratically in Delaware. An officer from the Clayton, Delaware Police Department had reportedly attempted to stop the vehicle, believing the driver may have been operating under the influence. Police say Hughes refused to stop, and they followed the vehicle into Maryland on Rt. 291, attempting to stop it.

When the suspect vehicle neared Crane Street, the preliminary investigation reportedly indicates the driver ran off the right side of the road and struck a curb. The vehicle then reportedly crossed back over the centerline, rotated 180 degrees and ran off the left side of the roadway. Police say the vehicle struck a utility pole and then ran into the vacant house.

The Maryland State Police Crash Team say they responded to conduct a detailed crash investigation and the investigation is continuing.
