Fatal accident in Worcester County Monday morning

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

(May 29, 2015) An Elkridge, Md. man was killed Monday morning in a one-car crash on the Route 90 ramp, Maryland State Police at the Berlin Barrack reported.

Police said a preliminary investigation showed that the car being driven by Travis Irving, 32, left the road and struck a tree. The vehicle came to a rest, but Irving did not have his seatbelt on and was ejected from his car.

Irving was the sole occupant of the car and was pronounced dead upon arrival of medical personnel.

His family was notified and Irving’s body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

The area was closed for about two hours after the collision with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland Office of Chief Medical Examiner, Berlin Fire Department and Maryland State Highway administration all assisting.
