Leonardtown woman dies in Saturday crash

A 26-year-old Leonardtown woman died in a Saturday crash, authorities said Monday.

St. Mary’s County police said Kristen Lee Dix was driving north on Maryland Route 5 near Pin Cushion Road in Loveville at about 12:37 p.m. when her vehicle left the roadway, crossed the shoulder and struck several wooden fence posts and a telephone pole before coming to rest in a field.

Dix, who police said was wearing a seatbelt, died at the scene. Authorities do not believe speed or alcohol contributed to the crash.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Sgt. Edward B. Evans at 301-475-4200.
