Bowie, MD, Father And Daughter Killed In Antique Car Crash

The Associated Press reports that a Bowie, Maryland, man and his daughter were killed while driving their antique car on Interstate 70 in Howard County, MD.

The car, a 1929 Model A Ford, was being driven by 62-year-old Richard Dashiell, who was accompanied by his daughter, Amelia. The antique car had a sticker on the back window warning approaching cars that his vehicle was slow moving, but the car was struck from behind by a 2007 Dodge.

Dashiell and Amelia were both thrown from the car – which was not equipped with seat belts, as many antique cars lack modern day safety options. The driver of the Dodge, Paul Davis of Glen Burnie, was not injured in the crash. Maryland State Police say that the antique Ford was traveling at about 50 miles per hour when it was hit from behind by the truck in Lisbon on I-70.

The Maryland car accident is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed at this time.
