A Florida woman died in a single-car crash Wednesday evening on Budds Creek Road.
Maryland State Police reported that Margarita Gunva Hardesty, 71, of Fort Pierce, Fla., was traveling east on Route 234 near Trinity Church Road when the Chrysler 300 M she was driving crossed the center line and drove through a guardrail and up an embankment before striking some trees.
Hardesty was pronounced dead at the scene.
The road, just east of Trinity Church Road, was closed for a few hours, Charles County EMS spokeswoman Elizabeth Campbell said Wednesday evening.
