High speed chase leads to accident

California, MD- On Jan. 18, at 11:47 PM, deputies responded to the base of the Thomas Johnson Bridge on Patuxent Beach Road, to assist the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office with a vehicle pursuit. The vehicle, a 2015 Chrysler 200 subsequently crashed.

The driver, identified as George Alfred Nock 3rd, 27, of Forestville, sustained severe life-threatening injuries and was flown to Prince George’s Shock Trauma by Maryland State Police Trooper 7.

Members of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Collision Reconstruction Team responded and assumed the investigation.

Preliminary investigation revealed, Nock was traveling south on Patuxent Beach Road in the area of Oak Drive, when he attempted to swerve around a Maryland State Police vehicle, lost control, and struck a guardrail. The vehicle overturned down an embankment and came to rest on the roof. Nock was trapped inside the vehicle and was extricated by fire department personnel.

At this time, speed appears to be a contributing factor in this accident. No citizens or police were injured.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash and has not already provided a statement, is asked to call Deputy First Class Brandon Foor at 301.475.4200 X 2265.
