(CENTREVILLE, MD) April 13, 2011 – After a review of investigative information by the county state’s attorney, Maryland State Police have charged a driver in connection with yesterday’s Queen Anne’s County crash that sent 17 people to area hospitals.
The driver charged in the crash is identified as Carl Trenz Jr., 49, of the 100- block of Big Holly Court, in Stevensville, Maryland. At about 1:00 p.m. today, a state trooper issued traffic citations to Trenz at his home. He was charged with reckless driving, negligent driving, driver turning left failure to yield right of way to a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction, failure to yield right of way at a through highway, and failure to stop at an intersecting highway stop sign and yield the right of way.
Trenz was the driver of a 2010 Volkswagen Toureg that State Police investigators believe pulled from White Marsh Road shortly before 9:00 a.m. yesterday onto southbound Rt. 213 and into the path of a tour bus carrying kindergarten children and their parents. Sixteen of the 35 children and adults on-board the bus were transported to hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Trenz was also transported to a hospital where he was treated and released.
Maryland State Police investigators reviewed evidence from the investigation this morning with Queen Anne’s County State’s Attorney Lance Richardson. After a review of the evidence, State’s Attorney Richardson approved the motor vehicle charges that were issued to Trenz.
The investigation is continuing.
