Man Who Fled Traffic Stop Fatally Hurt in Crash

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. — Maryland State Police say a Baltimore man was fatally injured in a crash minutes after fleeing a traffic stop in Calvert County.

A trooper stopped a Mitsubishi Lancer on Route 4 in Prince Frederick Sunday afternoon, but after the driver pulled to the shoulder, police say he drove off. The trooper followed the car as police say it swerved through traffic and a duty officer concerned for public safety ordered an end to the pursuit.

Minutes later, police say the Mitsubishi hit a Ford Escape on Route 4 south of Sixes Road. The drivers of both vehicles were flown to Prince George’s Hospital Center, where police say 27-year-old Jaie Perrizo, the Mitsubishi driver, was pronounced dead.

Troopers say 31-year-old Ryan Fisher of Port Republic was the driver of the Escape.
