Montgomery County Man Killed in Car Crash

The Montgomery County police are investigating the cause of a fatal crash that occurred on Saturday, March 9, 2010, at the intersection of Washington Grove Lane and Mid-County Highway that took the life of Lenard Ostilio Pineda-Guardado.

The driver of the 1996 Ford Ranger that Mr. Pineda-Guardado was a passenger in, stated to the police that he had the green light when a 1998 Dodge Durango plowed into the passenger side of his vehicle causing his vehicle to flip and crash into another vehicle.

It is believed the 17 year old teenager operating the 1998 Dodge Durango with a provisional license, was speeding.  He had four other passengers in the vehicle with him, one of which, besides himself, had to be taken to Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville for their injuries.  A spokeswoman for the Maryland Vehicle Administration, commented to press that only direct family members can ride in a vehicle with a person with a provisional driver's license within the first five months of having it.  

Consequences are invoked on the provisional driver that is found guilty of a moving violation.  The first time they are required to complete a driver training course.  The second violation carries a 30 day suspension and the third violation could lead to a 180 day suspension and the license could be revoked.  Hearings are mandatory when an accident involves a fatality.
