He was pronounced dead at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. STEVENSVILLE - A two-vehicle collision on state Route 8 near Stevensville Thursday killed one person and injured another. John Matthew Pease, 39, of Stevensville, was pronounced dead at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after being flown there by a Maryland State Police helicopter, said Tfc. Jennifer Schick of the Centreville Barrack. Kirsten Greenhawk, 35, of Stevensville, was taken by ambulance to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis where she was treated and released, said hospital spokesman Margo Mohsberg. Schick said shortly after 10 a.m., a 1991 Mazda driven by Pease was heading north on Route 8 at Worcester Road when the driver lost control. She said the car crossed into the south lane and collided with a 2001 Ford Expedition driven by Greenhawk. The Mazda, which was extensively damaged on the passenger side, came to rest with its rear end in a drainage ditch on the southbound side of Route 8. "I had just crossed the road and I heard the tires lock and then I heard them hit," said a man working nearby who asked not to be identified. "It was pretty loud." The man said he immediately called 9-1-1 on his cell phone, and then noticed that an EMT who he believed "just happened to be there" was giving assistance within moments of the collision. Officials at the United Communities Volunteer Fire Department confirmed that the EMT is a member of the department, but declined to identify him, saying he was too upset to discuss the crash.
