OC man dies in single-car crash

(Jan. 30, 2015) An Ocean City man, reportedly traveling to work last Friday, was killed on Baltimore Avenue near Sixth Street when his truck swerved into a utility pole for reasons not yet fully understood by the Ocean City Police Department.

Walter Corey, 56, was reportedly unconscious at the scene and later pronounced dead on arrival at Atlantic General Hospital.

Corey was employed by City Coucilman Wayne Hartman at his Wayne Hartman Management LLC.

Police incident commander Capt. Kevin Kirstein said at the scene the investigation had evidence only of an uncontrolled stop, with no evidence of braking.

In addition to a heavily scarred utility pole, at least one light pole was also destroyed by the truck. Debris had been recovered from at least 25 yards away at the time of the crash.

A fundraiser for the family has been scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at Trader Lee’s Village in West Ocean City.

The event will offer happy hour pricing, complimentary food and raffles.

There is no charge for admission, although donations will be accepted.

Questions should be directed to Trader Lee’s Village Store at 410-213-2000.
