Details from the original release:

On April 20, 2024, at approximately 11:30 p.m., a Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy was on patrol in the area of Liberty Road and Ridge Road when he observed a car driving westbound on Liberty Road at a high rate of speed. The deputy activated his emergency equipment and attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the car, but the driver, an adult male, failed to stop. After approximately thirty seconds, the deputy lost sight of the car, slowed down, and turned off his emergency equipment. A moment later, the deputy discovered that while fleeing from police, the driver had crossed over the double yellow lines into the eastbound lanes of Liberty Road near Fallon Road and struck an SUV head-on. The SUV contained two occupants. The driver of the SUV, an adult female, was pronounced dead on scene. The driver, who fled police, and the passenger in the SUV both suffered serious non-life-threatening injuries and were each taken to a local hospital for treatment.
