Woman convicted for role in 2017 chase in Wicomico County

Milan Palmiro, 29, of Salisbury

A woman was convicted of multiple charges after she was involved in a chase that damaged a home, in Salisbury. The woman's then-boyfriend and another woman were the victims in the 2017 case. 

The Office of the State's Attorney for Wicomico County says on March 14, 29-year-old Milan Palmiro, of Salisbury, was convicted of two counts of assault in the first degree, two counts of assault in the second degree, malicious destruction of property, and four counts related to failing to stop at the scene of an accident. The charges stem from an incident that happened in the 100 block of Washington Street, in August 2017.

At that time, officers with the Salisbury Police Department responded to the location after they received 911 calls regarding a vehicle that had been involved in a roll-over collision and had struck a house. The incident apparently began when Palmiro noticed her then-boyfriend as a passenger in a car with another woman. Palmiro was then involved in a chase that went through parts of Fruitland and Salisbury with the cars reaching speeds of 70 to 80 MPH.

During the incident, Palmiro began to repeatedly strike the back of the victims' car with her car, while on Eastern Shore Drive, north of College Avenue. This caused the victims' car to spin out of control, rolling over, and into a residence on Washington Street, before coming to a stop beside the home. Authorities report that the home was later condemned due to structural damage from the collision. The residents of the home were not injured. The two occupants of the victims' vehicle suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident. 

Sentencing for the 29-year-old was postponed pending a pre-sentence investigation.
