On Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020 at 6:02 am, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a motor vehicle collision at Piney Point Road and Take It Easy Ranch Road in Callaway. The Sheriff’s Office Collision Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and continued the investigation.

Preliminary investigation determined that a Chevrolet S10 pickup truck, operated by Joseph Quade, 73 of Callaway, attempted to turn left from Piney Point Road onto Take It Easy Ranch Road. While making the turn, the vehicle was struck by a Toyota Sequoia SUV, operated by Andrew Rogers, 33 of Callaway.

Joseph Quade, the operator of the Chevy S10, and passenger John Quade, 79 of Callaway, were both flown out to Washington DC area hospitals for incapacitating injuries. At Washington Hospital Center, Joseph Quade was later pronounced deceased. Rogers was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for non-incapacitating injuries.

At this time, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision.
