A four-car crash Saturday evening in Annapolis sent six people to the hospital, including two to the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center.

At roughly 6:40 p.m. Saturday, police responded to a multi-vehicle crash on MD-665 at Riva Road in Annapolis. An early investigation showed a Ford Raptor traveling east on Md-665 crossed the median into oncoming westbound traffic and hit a GMC pickup, a Dodge pickup, and a Hyundai. 

Witnesses who spoke to police came forward to say they had noticed the Raptor driving aggressively on US-50 before the crash. Currently, drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a factor, though that will be investigated.

The driver of the Raptor, Brian Nelson, 30, or Edgewater, Md., was taken to UM Shock Trauma with serious injuries. The driver and passenger of the GMC, Joshua Tylor Murphy, 24, of Ruther Glen, Va., and Jerry Maurice Norris, 44, of Virginia Beach, Va., were both taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center with minor injuries. The driver of the Dodge, Roy Lee Helms, 62, of Gambrills, Md., was taken to Shock Trauma with serious injuries. His passenger, Gail Stacy Helms, 62, of Gambrills, Md., was taken to Medstar DC Hospital with critical injuries. The driver of the Hyundai, Brett Edward Kohler, 24, of Woodstock, Md., was transported to Prince George's Trauma with serious injuries.
