BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say charges are pending in a four-vehicle crash that killed two motorcyclists and a senior citizen.

A news release from the agency says a preliminary investigation found 61-year-old Jerome Murphy was driving a dump truck Monday afternoon and rear-ended a car that was stopped and waiting to turn left near Boonsboro.

The dump truck and car then crossed into the opposite lane and hit two motorcycles. The motorcyclists, 50-year-old Stacy Virts and 25-year-old Brooke Riley, and 85-year-old Anna Stottlemyer, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the car, 58-year-old David Stottlemyer, was flown to a trauma center for medical treatment. Murphy rode in an ambulance to another hospital.

Police say the case will be presented to the Washington County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.
