Phil Buchanan Obituary, Death – An investigation has been initiated into a deadly car accident that took place early on Sunday morning and resulted in the death of an Edgewood woman. The accident occurred early in the morning. In response to a call about a car accident that was made on August 29, 2021 at 2:32 in the morning, deputies from the Southern Precinct of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office were sent to the 1400 block of Trimble Road in the Edgewood neighborhood. Deputy sheriffs arrived on the scene and found two vehicles, a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, involved in a head-on accident. Both cars were heading in the same general direction at the time.
At the time of the collision, Philip Buchanan, who was 33 years old and from Edgewood, was the only person inside the Silverado. He made the decision to forego receiving medical care. Linda Diamond, 59, from Edgewood, was driving the Hyundai when it was involved in an accident. She was taken to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center after the collision, but she was unable to survive her injuries and passed tragically at the hospital. Johns Hopkins Hospital took in two youngsters, both of whom were 11 years old and were riding as passengers in the Hyundai.
It is believed that the children’s injuries are not serious enough to risk their lives, and they were taken there to receive care. Unharmed was a toddler of three years of age who was traveling in the trunk of the Hyundai at the time of the accident. Crash Team deputies from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the site to assume control of the investigation into the cause of the incident as well as the circumstances surrounding it. The takeover of the investigation was the goal of their mission.
According to preliminary data collected at the scene of the accident, Buchanan was driving westbound on Trimble Road when, for some reason that cannot be explained, he crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Hyundai. This information was gathered from the scene of the accident. At this moment, it does not appear that drugs or alcohol played any role in the accident that took place. The research project is now being carried out. There are currently no plans in place to make any additional information about this matter available to the general public. The Traffic Unit of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have information regarding the incidence to contact them at the following number: 443-409-3324.
