One driver in deadly crash comes forward



One of the drivers who struck John Wade Guassardo's body on Interstate 70 Tuesday night has come forward to police, Maryland State Police Lt. Greg Johnston said.

Johnston said no charges have been filed against the drivers who left the scene of the 8:36 p.m. accident after striking Guassardo, who was thrown from his car into the middle of the highway after striking an embankment.

He said police will discuss charges with the Washington County Office of the State's Attorney.

State's Attorney Charles Strong said Thursday morning that the case is under review.

Police said Guassardo, 23, of Frederick, Md., swerved his 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier to avoid rear-ending another vehicle. After he swerved, Guassardo went into the median and struck an embankment, causing the car to roll several times and throwing Guassardo from the car, police said.
