Woman convicted in drunken driving fatal accident

September 21, 1994

A 25-year-old woman pleaded guilty to homicide by motor vehicle while intoxicated yesterday in Anne Arundel Circuit Court stemming from her role in a May 1 car accident in Glen Burnie that killed her passenger.

Melissa Ann Kramp of the 3200 block of Lily Ave., Baltimore, was convicted by Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr. based on a statement of facts read by Assistant State's Attorney Darryl Jones.

Mark A. Uhlig, 26, of the 1700 block of Selma Ave., Arbutus, Ms. Kramp's passenger, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr. Jones said Ms. Kramp was driving east on Mountain Road near Route 10 about 9:30 p.m. when she lost control of her 1992 Dodge Shadow, went off the road, struck a traffic sign and slammed into a utility pole.

Police said a blood alcohol test given after the accident showed Ms. Kramp's alcohol level to be .15, above the .10 legal standard for intoxication in Maryland. Judge Thieme set sentencing for Nov. 17.
