On Saturday, August 22, 2020 at approximately 5:30 a.m., members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Bureau and Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the intersection of Maryland Route 2 and Kent Road in Sunderland, MD for a report of a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle. 

The preliminary investigation determined that a 2019 Chevrolet Traverse operated by Roberto Ramirez, 31 of Huntingtown, MD, was traveling northbound on MD Route 2 in the area of Kent Road when the vehicle struck the pedestrian. The pedestrian was identified as Tristian Joshua Lansberry, 19 of Waldorf, MD who had been in the travel portion of the roadway wearing dark clothing. Lansberry was pronounced deceased on the scene by emergency personnel. There were no reported injuries to Ramirez.

At this time, pedestrian error appears to be the main contributing factor in this collision.
