Police Investigate Serious Vehicle Collision
In Gaithersburg Which Turned Fatal
Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Collision Reconstruction Unit are investigating a personal injury collision that occurred yesterday afternoon in the Gaithersburg. A passenger in one of the vehicles involved in the collision later died from the injuries she received.
At approximately 4:49 p.m. on Thursday, February 14, 6th District officers and Fire Rescue personnel responded to the report of a serious personal injury collision at the intersection of Airpark Road and Muncaster Mill Road in Gaithersburg.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of a 2005 Nissan Murano was traveling northbound on Airpark Road just north of Muncaster Mill Road. The Nissan passed a 1994 Honda Civic driven by Daniel Patrick Boyland, age 36, of the 10000 block of Shelldrake Circle in Damascus, and was attempting to move over into the lane where the Civic was traveling. The Nissan hadn’t completely passed the Civic when the vehicles struck. That collision caused the driver of the Nissan to lose control and cross over the grassy median into the southbound lanes. The Nissan struck a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by James Hunters Viers, age 58, of the 14000 block of Spring Meadow Drive in Darnestown, MD head-on that was traveling southbound on Airpark Road.
Both the driver and passenger of the Nissan were transported to Suburban Hospital. The passenger, identified as Sandra Taylor, age 57, of the 20000 block of Seabrook Drive in Montgomery Village, was treated at Suburban Hospital and a short time later succumbed to her injuries. The driver, identified as Paul Taylor, age 57, of the same block address, was later transferred to Baltimore Shock Trauma where he remains in stable condition. Boyland was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries. Viers did not require medical treatment.
Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is asked to call the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 301-840-2435. The investigation is continuing.
