Fatal Collision Investigation


On October 21, 2018, at approximately 4:10 a.m. deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to a vehicle collision in the 28100 block of Mechanicsville Road, in the area of Bet Lane, in Mechanicsville, Maryland. Upon arrival deputies located a single vehicle, with one occupant that had crashed into a building. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Collision Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and continued the investigation. 

Preliminary investigation determined a 2016 Ford F-150 operated by Antonio Joseph Malaspina, age 71 of Mechanicsville, was traveling south on Mechanicsville Road, towards Budds Creek Road, when the vehicle crossed the center line and exited the roadway.  The vehicle struck a sign post, telephone pole, and ultimately an unoccupied building.  Malaspina was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown, where he succumbed to his injuries.  At this time it is suspected Malaspina suffered a medical emergency; speed and alcohol are not considered to be contributing factors in the collision.

Inaccurate Rumor Being Shared Online

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is aware of an online rumor being shared on social media relaying a story that drivers are being attacked on local roads when they stop after being struck with objects or after driving over roadway debris.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office received a report of rocks in the road on Piney Point Road on Oct. 7, 2018, but no report of the driver being attacked. The Sheriff’s Office was indirectly notified of a reported assault on Oct. 16, 2018 at Route 235 and St. John’s Road in Hollywood, but no robbery occurred. The case is still under investigation.

At this time, there is no reason to believe the two incidents are related and we have no other reports of this nature.

If roadside attacks had been reported to the Sheriff’s Office, the Public Information Office would immediately alert the public to such activity.
