Laurel man, 27, charged in fatal crash on bridge


May 07, 2002

A 27-year-old Laurel man has been charged with manslaughter in connection with a four-vehicle accident last fall on the Bay Bridge that killed an Eastern Shore woman, county prosecutors said yesterday.

In an eight-count indictment unsealed yesterday, Paul Thomas Parsons of the 3500 block of Whiskey Bottom Road was charged with negligent manslaughter, driving under the influence and related charges, court records show. He was served with a warrant Friday and released. An arraignment is scheduled for May 29.

Parsons was driving west on the Bay Bridge shortly after midnight Oct. 24, with only one span open, when, according to prosecutors, his car sideswiped a truck and crashed head-on into a car driven by Linda M. Fisher, 43, of Crumpton, who died five days later.
