Question of the Day
Chase ends with car rolling into creek
A high-speed chase ended Wednesday night when the man being pursued rolled his car into a creek, Maryland State Police said.
The chase began when a Frederick City police officer tried to stop the man for suspicion of driving under the influence. Instead, the man headed north on U.S. Route 15, striking another vehicle and reaching speeds of 100 mph, police said.
Troopers said the driver lost control and landed in Toms Creek. He was identified as Joseph McDermott, 55, of Rockville. He was flown to a hospital with injuries described as not life-threatening and is being charged with DUI, fleeing police and a list of traffic offenses.
Soldier’s ID fixed after 143 years
The Sons of Confederate Veterans successfully argued that remains at a national cemetery marked as those of a Union soldier actually belong to a Southern infantryman. The decision corrects a 143-year-old misidentification.
The U.S. Park Service conducted a mock trial at the Dinwiddie County Courthouse this week and determined that Grave No. 4828 belonged to Sgt. Ivy Ritchie of the 14th North Carolina Infantry.
Three SCV members in North Carolina argued that the remains at Poplar Grove National Cemetery had been wrongly identified as Union Sgt. J. Richie of New York. Petersburg National Battlefield Park Superintendent Bob Kirby announced the decision after he heard evidence from both sides and consulted with a three-judge panel.
The debate dates to April 9, 1865, when the two similarly named men were killed.
Of the cemetery’s 6,183 graves, 4,110 are of unknown soldiers, and most of the remains belong to Union troops.
