A Great Mills woman was killed Sunday night, police report, when she walked across Route 235 south of Lexington Park into the path of a van traveling on the highway.
Shirley Jordan, 63, died at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital after the 9 p.m. accident that occurred near the highway’s intersection with Mattapany Road, according to St. Mary’s sheriff’s deputies. No injuries to the van’s driver, 43-year-old Cong Nguyen of Virginia, were reported from the collision.
“There was some kind of an event, a party going on at somebody’s house,” a senior sheriff’’s deputy said this week, adding that Jordan “was crossing the street to get to her car.”
Neither alcohol nor the van’s speed appear to be contributing factors in the accident, the sheriff’s office reported from the preliminary investigation. The sheriff’s office has requested that anyone with information about the accident call deputy Christopher Beyer at 301-475-4040.
