Fatal Accident On Route 90

BERLIN — A local man was killed in a single-vehicle accident early Tuesday morning when his vehicle left the roadway along westbound Route 90 and struck a tree.

Around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Maryland State Police troopers were dispatched to westbound Route 90 near St. Martin’s Neck Road for a reported single-vehicle accident.

Upon arrival, troopers determined a 1997 Ford F-150 had left the roadway and struck a tree. Still inside the vehicle was the driver, identified as Christopher Patrick Doyle, 31, of Berlin, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

An MSP reconstructionist was brought to the scene and further investigation revealed Doyle was not wearing a seatbelt and suffered fatal injuries as a result of colliding with the tree. Westbound Route 90 was closed from 5:30 a.m. until about 9 a.m., when it was reopened for normal traffic operations.

  1. My wife and I left OC at 5 AM Tuesday and crossed Rt 90 . Between St Martin’s and Rt 50 we encountered 12 to 15 deer along Rt 90 in various areas both on the road and along the side . Unless another determination is made my guess is Mr. Doyle may have also had an encounter. We were lucky to dodge all the deer . It’s time to thin the deer population in that area before someone else has an accident .
