SEVERN – A Severn man died Saturday night in a single-vehicle crash in Northampton County.

According to a preliminary report, Edward Earl Dorsey, 42, was traveling west on State Road 1351 (Vaughan Creek Road) about three-tenths of a mile north of Severn shortly before 11:30 p.m.

Trooper J.T. Keeter of the state Highway Patrol noted Dorsey’s vehicle went off the road to the right and the driver overcorrected. His vehicle then went left of center, traveled off the roadway to the left and overturned several times before colliding with a parked vehicle. Dorsey was ejected from the vehicle.

Keeter’s report indicates no seatbelt was used and driver inattention is listed as a contributing factor.
