Fatal Bay Bridge Truck Case Wrapping Up

The 19-year-old woman who fell asleep while driving on the Bay Bridge before a fatal accident has pleaded guilty to three motor vehicle charges. Queen Anne’s State’s Attorney Lance Richardson says Candy Baldwin of Millington paid $470 in fines last month to settle county district court charges. On August 10, 57-year-old John Short of Willards died in his tractor trailer after crashing over the side of the Bay Bridge. Authorities say Baldwin’s car veered into oncoming traffic moments before Short drove through the bridge’s walls and into the water. Baldwin’s blood-alcohol level was .03, which former state’s attorney Frank Kratovil decided was too low to press criminal charges in the fatal accident
