The gashed hull of a Boston whaler tells Cpl. Dennis W. Leland that a terrible hit-and-run accident occurred last weekend on the Chesapeake Bay, leaving a mother and son dead.But there are few other clues to what happened a week ago near the mouth of the Choptank River in an accident that killed a sister-in-law and nephew of Montgomery County Executive Neal Potter.Evidence does not tell police where the accident occurred.
