Women Charged In Deadly Traffic Incidents In Maryland
LA PLATA, Md. (AP) — Authorities say two women are facing criminal charges in deadly traffic incidents in Charles County.
The county sheriff’s office says 21-year-old Jacqline V. Kierra Mack of Waldorf was arrested on March 31. Authorities say Mack was driving in Waldorf when she lost control of her car, jumped a curb and struck 31-year-old Andre Nelson Shorts in November. Shorts later died at a hospital.
Authorities say a grand jury indicted Mack on charges of vehicular manslaughter.
Twenty-one-year-old Rachel Buckler of Pomfret was arrested on March 28. Authorities say Buckler was indicted on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving a death in Port Tobacco in September. Authorities say a passerby found 47-year-old Thomas Roepcke unconscious on the side of a road. Roepcke later died at a hospital.
