Probe into fatality continues

January 03, 1997

Maryland State Police have collected more information about the circumstances of a Christmas Day accident that claimed the life of a Hagerstown doctor, but no charges had been filed by Thursday.

Trooper 1st Class T.J. McKenrick's initial report indicated an eastbound tractor-trailer was moving slowly on the berm of Interstate 70 just east of Md. 66 when a vehicle in the slow lane, also eastbound, veered into the passing lane and into the path of a car driven by Dr. Lynn Marie Freeze.

Police said Freeze swung her car to the left to avoid that car and then lost control of her car, which careened back across both lanes and skidded under the tractor-trailer, police said.

Freeze, 33, of 19308B Smallwood Terrace, died Wednesday night at Washington County Hospital.

Freeze practiced as a primary care physician at Robinwood Family Practice and had worked on the staff of the hospital for several years.
