BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 32-year-old Lexington Park woman faces charges of DUI homicide by motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a crash and numerous other DUI related charges after police say she intentionally rammed a car she was racing.
According to Calvert County Sheriff’s Office investigators, a 2012 Ford Mustang driven by Lindsay Leanne Canter and 2009 Nissan 370 Z driven by 32-year-old Ronald Joseph Ball of Huntingtown were both traveling northbound on Maryland Route 4 in the early morning hours of Thursday.
As the vehicles entered the intersection of Rousby Hall Road in Lusby, the Mustang allegedly struck the Nissan in the rear, causing the Nissan to go off the roadway and into an embankment, where it rolled and landed on its roof.
Canter left the scene, police say, but she and her vehicle were later located nearby by Sheriff’s Office Patrol Bureau deputies.
After the wreck, Ball was transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing. Investigators say alcohol “is undoubtedly a factor” in this case.
If anyone has any information regarding this collision, they are being asked to contact Sgt. V. Bortchevsky of at 410-535-2800 ext. 2540 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
