A reminder for runners to wear reflective gear and running lights, and to always, always be aware that drivers aren’t looking for runners.
12/03/2019 at 6:23pm: Fatal Collision: Preliminary investigations indicate the driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe, Patrick Tackney, 48, of Annapolis, was leaving the driveway of a group of businesses at 1950 West Street to turn right, westbound on West Street. At the same time the pedestrian, Ernest Powell, 65, of Annapolis, was walking on the sidewalk eastbound along West Street across the same driveway. The Chevrolet struck Mr. Powell and then turned into the parking lot of the business at 1952 West Street. Mr. Powell sustained serious, life threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Mr. Powell died from his injuries. Witnesses prevented the driver, Tackney, from leaving the scene of the accident. Tackney was arrested and charged with negligent manslaughter, driving while impaired and multiple additional related charges. Tackney is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center without bond.
