The man charged with causing the traffic accident that resulted in the death of Washington County Emergency Medical Services Director Brigitte Heller last year was pulled over for speeding a little more than an hour before the fatal collision occurred, according to Maryland online court records. Jeffrey Daryl Neuman Jr., 18, of 14800 View Way Court in Glenelg, Md., was stopped in Worcester County by Maryland State Police at about 6:16 a.m. on June 14, 2012. The trooper from the Berlin barrack who made the stop on U.S. 50 near Snow Hill issued him a citation alleging he was driving 86 mph in a 55 mph speed zone, the website casesearch.courts.state.md.us shows . About 75 minutes later and roughly 70 miles away, the BMW that Neuman was driving crossed the center line on U.S. 50 in Talbot County and crashed into the SUV being driven by Heller, police allege.
