    Pedestrian Killed Budds Creek Road Monday a.m.

    Fatal Collision 3-14-16

    On March 14, 2016 at 6:32 am, Troopers from the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barrack responded to a motor vehicle collision on Maryland Route 234, Budd’s Creek Road, at Maryland Route 236, Thompson Corner Road, Mechanicsville, St. Mary’s County, Maryland. Investigation revealed that a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado driven by William K. Halt, Jr., 41, of Mechanicsville, was travelling east on Budd’s Creek Road. A vehicle in front of the Silverado stopped to make a left hand turn from Budd’s Creek Road onto Thompson’s Corner Road. The Silverado attempted to pass the vehicle on the right and subsequently struck a pedestrian.

    The pedestrian, who has not been identified at this time, was pronounced deceased at the scene of the collision. The collision is currently under investigation by TFC W. Scarlett. (16-MSP-010186)

    UPDATE: The pedestrian has been identified as Joseph Willie Hall, 48, of Waldorf.

    Somebody is in big trouble if there was not a lane to go around the turning vehicle.

    Even then you are not supposed to run over folks walking down the side of the road.

    But you probably won't be held accountable if they were in the roadway and you were not able to stop.

    But if they are in a travel lane, then you have some chance of not being culpable. Especially in the dark, if they are wearing dark clothes.
