The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Collision Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and continued the investigation.

Preliminary investigation determined a 1994 Ford Ranger operated by Walter Tyrone Waul, age 55 of Callaway, was traveling east on Great Mills Road, and struck a pedestrian in a motorized wheelchair.

Wood was transported to an area hospital with incapacitating injuries, where he was later pronounced deceased.
