(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.
(PIKESVILLE, MD – Feb 7, 2011) – Maryland state troopers arrested dozens of suspected drunk drivers and issued more than 3,000 traffic citations and warnings as part of increased patrols yesterday.
Troopers arrested 42 drunk drivers and issued 1,653 traffic citations and 1,604 warnings as part of increased patrols on Sunday, February 6, 2011. Troopers also made 22 criminal arrests and recovered two guns. Each of the 22 Maryland State Police barracks had special DUI saturation patrols assigned yesterday.
DUI arrests seemed to be spread geographically across the state. Troopers at the Easton Barrack on the Eastern Shore, JFK Memorial Highway Barrack on I-95, and the College Park Barrack on I-495 made four DUI arrests in their patrol areas. Three DUI arrests were made at the Salisbury Barrack in Wicomico County, the Golden Ring Barrack in Baltimore County, the Prince Frederick Barrack in Calvert County, and the Berlin Barrack in Worcester County.
Troopers at the Westminster Barrack handled a fatal crash late Saturday night in which one person was killed. Preliminary information does not indicate that alcohol was a factor.
Maryland State Police remind motorists that if they receive a traffic citation on or after Jan. 1, 2011, a new law requires the driver to request a trial date instead of one being automatically assigned.

Attention all Drivers! Important law change, regarding traffic citations. See your (Nixel) email for further details.
If you receive a traffic citation in Maryland, a new law has changed what you are required to do in response to that citation. The new law requires that you must:
1. Request a trial date at the date, time and place established by the District Court; or
2. Request a hearing regarding sentencing and disposition in lieu of a trial, (meaning you do not dispute the truth of the facts as alleged in the citation, but you with to be heard regarding sentencing); or
3. Pay the full amount of the preset fine.
The law requires that you make one of these three choices and notify the District Court within 30 days of receiving the traffic citation. (Instructions are printed on your copy of the citation.) If not, the MD Motor Vehicle Administration will be notified and may take action to suspend your driver’s license. The law does not apply to traffic citations for “must appear” offenses. The court will automatically notify you of a trial date.
