My gf just told me that she knows the Woman and the child. Woman was going to school in Salisbury and is from Charles County.
She has made that trip hundreds of times. Really confusing how that day she got all turned around.

Potential suicide? Maybe she freaked out and lost it?

It's 2.1 miles from the Wawa to the site of the accident. Maybe they will release the whole story so we can stop speculating?

I was at the MSP Barracks in Annapolis last night talking to the officer on desk duty. He said he heard it was Wawa. The investigating officer was gone for the day.

I have a call into the investigator as he was looking for surveillance footage along 50 and Busch's Frontage.

The accident happened directly across from the 84 Lumber/Storage facility if that helps anyone visualize where it happened.

I drove that stretch today and there were some major truck skid marks in the middle lane going down the hill toward the Bay Dale overpass.

I'm guessing that downhill section provided sight lines to see someone coming at them in the left lane, and people moved over.

For someone coming off the Severn River bridge going east there is a curve before cresting that hill at the Route 2 interchange. The crash was going too happen in that stretch because there was no time to react and yank the wheel to the right.

As someone who finishes work late on weekend nights, I have tried to make a habit of driving in the right lane around the Beltway and on route 50 because a wrong-way driver will naturally occupy the farthest right lane for them – – which is my left lane.

I just spoke with the investigating MSP officer and she definitely entered 50E from Busch's Frontage going the wrong way.

That's what thought based on the multiple 911 calls.

She was going the wrong way for TWO minutes in broad daylight.

Unbelievably, she crested one hill going west on 50E at the Red, Hot & Blue (restaurant with the windmill) and did not collide with anyone.

It's a shame the clear sightlines over that next mile doing downhill and then uphill were not enough to get her stopped.

Its pretty hard to imagine someone getting on a highway going the wrong way without it being on purpose or caused by something else. If she managed to go up a wrong ramp, you would have quickly noticed all the traffic going the wrong way and immediately stopped. Then either backed down the ramp or tried to turn around some how. Its one thing to be going with traffic, miss your exit, then say, "a well I will go to the next exit." That aint happening if I am going the wrong way on a highway.

Or she panicked and did not know what to do. Or there was no traffic during that period of time.

I put Zero credibility on any rumor that she did it on purpose.

Can anyone here say which direction the 911 callers were traveling?

Some calls would almost certainly have come from the west bound drivers who were likely sounding their horns as they drove parallel to her.

Maybe all the commotion of oncoming horns plus horns coming from parallel drivers on her right panicked her. Going west in the eastbound lane gave her NO pull off to the right, where there is about 6 feet of grass between the road and the guardrail there.

Sad, but I have to think she was DUI with weed or liquor.
