Waldorf Fatal

Speed is thought to be a factor in a crash that killed a person in a late Wednesday night crash in Waldorf. Two vehicles were involved in the wreck on northbound United States Route 301 in the area of Central Avenue in Waldorf. A preliminary investigation indicates a vehicle driven by 36 year old Gregory Francis Stanback Jr of Upper Marlboro, was traveling northbound on United States Route 301 in the area of Central Avenue at a high rate of speed. At the same time, a pick up operated by Eric Austin Ford, 32 of Waldorf, was making a U-turn from southbound US Route 301 to northbound US Route 301. The two collided and Stanback was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pick up was transported by ambulance to University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital for treatment.
