No Charges In Fatal Berlin Pedestrian Accident

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md. - Nearly seven months after two teens were reportedly struck by a State Trooper on Route 113 in Berlin, no charges will be filed against the driver.

The decision comes from the Worcester County State's Attorney's Office, after a review of the official accident report prepared by the Maryland State Trooper Crash Team.

Trooper Nicholas Hagar allegedly hit the teens as they crossed the highway one evening in November. Tymeir D. Dennis, 16, was killed, and his brother, Tyheym D. Bowen lost his leg.

A member of the family tells 47 ABC they are trying to move on the best they can. Bowen now has a prosthetic leg and is even playing basketball.

The town has made a number of changes to the intersection of Bay Street and Route 113, including crosswalks, new signs and reducing the speed limit to 45 miles per hour. And a lighted crosswalk signal will be installed this fall.
