A Waynesboro, Pa., man has been charged in connection with a speed contest Monday night on Md. 64 that claimed the life of a 19-year-old man, Maryland State Police Trooper 1st Class S. Miller said Wednesday.
Thomas E. Smetzer, 29, was charged with reckless driving, negligent driving, speed greater than reasonable and driver being involved in a speed contest, Miller said.
Miller said none of the charges carry possible jail time. The maximum penalty on the most serious charge of reckless driving carries a $580 fine, he said.
