Two People Killed in Clarksburg Rollover Crash

A rollover crash in the Clarksburg area claimed the lives of two young people from Germantown on Saturday night. 20-year-old Dylan Bansi and 18-year-old Maryann Hardesty were both killed as a result.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a 2013 Jeep Wrangler, driven by Bansi, was traveling south on Ridge Road (Route 27) near Morning Star Drive. For reasons still under investigation, authorities say the Jeep left the roadway and rolled over several times. Police and fire personnel responded to the scene shortly before 11:45 p.m.

Bansi was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries where he later died. The passenger, Hardesty, was pronounced deceased at the scene, police say.

According to Northwest High School’s Principal Jimmy D’Andrea’s Twitter page, Hardesty was a senior last year.

The NWHS Class of 2020 Twitter account shared a post that reads, “We are so sad about the passing of Maryann Hardesty. Our hearts go out to her friends and family.”

The tweet also included an e-card for Hardesty’s family, where several people have added heartfelt messages and photos commemorating Maryann.

MCPD says this investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding this fatal collision is urged to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 240-773-6620.
