Man identified in deadly crash

Maryland

Maryland State Police continue to investigate this accident.

ACCIDENT, Md. (WDVM) — The man who died in a deadly crash last month has been identified by dental records.

Police say Joshua Taylor Blankenship, 25, of Chatsworth, Georgia, was driving north on Rt. 219, when he “failed to navigate a left turn” on November 16. He drove off the road and his car hit a tree and immediately caught fire.

Blankenship was trapped in the car. Police had to wait for an autopsy to identify Blankenship, and got the results early Tuesday morning.

Corrected: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the accident happened yesterday, December 16, rather than last month on November 16.
