(May 10, 2019) A 66-year-old woman was killed in a car crash that shut down a portion of Route 113 in Snow Hill for several hours last Friday evening, Maryland State Police said.

Charlotte Sophia Teter, of Pocomoke, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to state police.

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and Snow Hill Fire Department assisted state police at the scene of a two-vehicle wreck that occurred around 5:20 p.m. near the intersection of Route 113 and Timmons Road.

The driver of a 2014 Dodge Ram truck, 18-year-old Chance Michael Potts, of Pocomoke, was traveling south on Route 113, according to a police investigation. He allegedly crossed over the center line and hit Teter, who was driving north in a 2016 Chevrolet van.

Route 113 was closed in both directions for about three hours following the crash, according to police.

The investigation is continuing as of early this week, police said.
