Second Fatal Accident in Maryland's Deadly Weekend

Another Sunday morning car accident resulted in serious injury for three bicyclists. The vehicle's driver perished in the crash.

Romota Olumemisi Koletowo was driving home from work around 10:00 a.m. when, for unknown reasons, her vehicle lurched off the road. It knocked over a light pole, sped across a roadside bike path and hit several bushes before launching into the bench where Franz Clementschitsch and his family had stopped to rest before continuing their bike ride.

The impact hurled Franz nearly 40 feet into the woods, while Koletowo's vehicle flipped and came to a rest upside down. Koletowo was pronounced dead by medical personnel at Prince George's Hospital Center around noon.

Franz was flown to Baltimore's Shock Trauma Center with severe and life-threatening injuries, but was reported to be in stable, albeit serious, condition on Sunday evening. His wife Susanne and one of the couple's twin boys were brought to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where they too were in serious, but stable condition.

Investigators do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a part in the deadly car crash, but are looking to see whether fatigue or a sudden medical condition might have been a part of it. The previous night and into that morning, Koletowo had worked third shift, beginning at 11:00 p.m.
