(Dec. 22, 2017) Newark resident June Gravenor, 73, died as a result of a car accident in Berlin that occurred at about 10:20 p.m. on Sunday evening.

According to police, Gravenor was traveling south on Route 113 and Bay Street in a Kia Soul when her car collided at a traffic light with 19-year-old Berlin resident Cody Bunting, traveling east on Bay Street in a jeep.

Police reported Gravenor was taken by Berlin EMS to Atlantic General Hospital and then was airlifted to Shock Trauma in Baltimore, where she later died.

Rescue personnel from Showell apparently took Bunting to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. He had non-life-threatening injuries and was released, according to police.

Berlin Police Chief Arnold Downing said alcohol was involved, but did not necessarily contribute to the accident.

He said police are looking into phone records and waiting for medical reports.

“There is an outstanding witness. A black male was in a vehicle at the opposite intersection when the accident occurred and spoke to deputies, but did not leave his information,” Downing said. “We’re waiting to make contact with him. We believe we have a phone number for a witness and we’re hoping it’s the same individual.”

No charges are being filed at this time and police are not assigning fault, Downing said. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Berlin Police Department at 410-641-1333.
