June 1, 2016

(GREENSBORO, MD) – Maryland State Police continue to investigate a fatal crash in Caroline County this morning that claimed the lives of three people.

The victims are identified as Joanne Janvier, 52, of the 12000 block of Kibler Road in Greensboro, Angelina Noble, 9, and Jeremy McCready, 6, also of Greensboro. Emergency medical services personnel pronounced all three individuals deceased at the scene.

Shortly before noon today, troopers from the Easton Barrack responded to the 27000 block of Maryland Route 314, Whiteleysburg Road, approximately 1.5 miles east of Kibler Road in Greensboro for the reported crash. The preliminary investigation indicates that Janvier, the operator of a red Toyota Matrix, traveling westbound on Route 314 with her two grandchildren, swerved to avoid a dog in the road. Subsequently, she lost control of the vehicle, crossed the center line and traveled into the path of a tractor trailer traveling eastbound.

The tractor trailer loaded with corn was operated by Benjamin Gilmer, Jr., 35 of the 11000 block of Needam Road in Warton, Maryland. Gilmer was uninjured in the crash and refused medical treatment at the scene. There are no indications that alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Whiteleysburg Road remains closed while State Highway Administration is on the scene assisting with detours. State troopers from Easton Barrack and the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division responded to the scene. Police officers from the Greensboro Police Department, sheriff deputies from the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office and EMS personnel from the Greensboro Fire Department also responded to assist.

The Maryland State Police CRASH Team is on the scene conducting a reconstruction of the incident as the investigation continues.
