Salisbury Woman Killed In Crash On Route 50 In Anne Arundel County


(Annapolis, MD) – State Police are investigating a crash that claimed the life of a woman driving westbound in the eastbound lanes of Route 50 in Annapolis this afternoon.

The deceased victim is identified as Laura Ashley Murphy, 22, of Salisbury. She was pronounced deceased on the scene. Murphy was driving a black 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan.

The other passenger in Murphy’s vehicle was a 14-month old infant. He was flown by State Police medevac to Johns Hopkins where he is undergoing medical treatment for injuries sustained in the crash.

The driver of the vehicle that was struck head-on has not yet been identified pending next of kin notification. He was the sole occupant, driving a silver 2016 Mercedes SUV. EMS personnel extricated him from the vehicle and transported him by a second State Police medevac on the scene to Shock Trauma.

The third vehicle involved in the crash was driven by Anthony Stanley, 59 of Bowie. Stanley was driving a 2016 Nissan 350-Z, which sustained minor damage. He was uninjured in the crash.

Shortly before 1:30 p.m. today, troopers from the Annapolis barrack responded to multiple calls reporting a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction on Rt. 50 at Route 2, in Annapolis. As troopers dispatched, additional calls were received reporting the crash. Arriving troopers found fire and rescue personnel on the scene attending to the victim, who was pronounced deceased on the scene.

As of 4:00 p.m., troopers were still on the scene conducting the investigation and obtaining information. The preliminary information indicates that Murphy was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes of Route 50, approximately one-quarter mile east of the Severn River Bridge when the crash occurred. It is unknown where Murphy initially entered onto Route 50 at this time.

Murphy’s vehicle crashed head-on with the Mercedes SUV, which came to rest on the side of the highway in a wooded area. The driver was trapped inside the vehicle. EMS providers on the scene requested a GO-TEAM response. Shortly after 4:00 p.m., the driver was extricated from the vehicle and transported by State Police medevac to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

The Maryland State Police Crash Team has responded and will be conducting a detailed crash reconstruction. MDOT State Highway Administration personnel are on the scene assisting with lane closures and detours around the scene.

Traffic is being detoured around the scene onto Route 450 and St. Margaret’s Road for Eastbound travel. Route 50 eastbound is expected to remain closed through the rush hour as the investigation and clean-up continues. Westbound Route 50 has been reopened. Motorists are urged to visit 511md.org or call 511 for updated traffic advisories.

The investigation continues…

I heard that she was going at a high rate of speed on the shoulder going the wrong way and swerved head on into the other car. Prayers to her family and for the innocent child fighting for his life

I'm liking how this person is transmitting gossip all the way from Anne Arundel County without being on the scene. The dead person must have texted them the info.

Then they follow up with "Prayers to her family and for the innocent child fighting for his life" Bullsh!t as if no one would notice their stupid comment!

If this Piece of Sh!t had any real compassion this would have been the only comment worth posting "Prayers to her family and for the innocent child fighting for his life."

Poor girl had problems for years. Mental and substance. It's a shame someone else had to die at her hands. Thankfully her baby should be alright.

Pure ignorance. You don't know what the girl is as going through. Regardless of her past. That's irrelevant.

Not irrelevant if she was on a death wish. Obviously know way more than you.

It's still intentional. She killed another person. No different than a Muslim isis guy running his car into a crowd. She was on that level. Just because she was young, white, and pretty she can do no wrong.,

Maybe miss murphy should have had compassion and not took poor mr. Skid more with her. I can't sympathize with the murderer. Even trying to kill her baby too.

No one know what happened yet so do not make assumptions. And please keep in mind that her family may read this so keep hurtful comments to yourself.
