On Saturday, eastbound lanes of Route 50 at Aris T. Allen Boulevard and Route 665 were closed because of a three-car accident. Unfortunately, the three occupants in one of the vehicles involved all died. Raymond Badders died at the scene, and his daughter, Susannah Badders, who was driving, and the third passenger passed away at Shock Trauma. Occupants in the second vehicle were not injured. The driver of third vehicle, an off-duty police officer, suffered only minor injuries even though his vehicle overturned.

Maryland State Police say that evidence shows the third vehicle swerved into the first vehicle to avoid stopped traffic. The third vehicle overturned and pushed the first vehicle into the second vehicle in front of it. Police have not said if speed or other factors such as texting or talking on a cell phone led to this horrific accident.
