    Woman Killed in Poolesville Crash

    Icy roads might have played a role in Monday morning's fatal crash on Darnestown Road in Poolesville, a stretch of road that News4's Zachary Kiesch has learned is much busier since the closing of White's Ferry. (Published Monday, March 9, 2015)

    A 34-year-old Maryland woman was killed Monday morning after the driver of a pickup truck apparently crossed the center line, causing a four-vehicle crash in Poolesville, Maryland, said police.

    The victim has been identified as Amy Burdette Riggs, 34, of Adamstown, Maryland.

    Montgomery County Police say a man was driving a Ford F-250 pickup truck in the 20700 block of Darnestown Road when he crossed into the opposite lane, hitting Riggs' Subaru Forester head-on around 7:40 a.m.

    The man's pickup then rolled over several times, striking a Kia Sorento in the process. A second Subaru Forester was hit by flying debris.

    Riggs was taken to a local hospital, where she died.

    The driver of the Ford F-250 was identified as Kenneth Turner Bynaker, Jr., 19, of Rockville. He was taken to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

    The driver of the Kia Sorento, a Maryland woman, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the second Subaru Forester, a Virginia man, was not hurt.

    The Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate this collision. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the unit at 240-773-6620.
