Investigators Find 2020 Supra Involved in High Speed Crash was Not Stolen

Montgomery County Police Department continues to investigate a fatal car collision that occurred Sept. 9 in Gaithersburg.

All parties and vehicle owners have been identified, said Montgomery County Police Sgt. John O’Brien, who works with the collision reconstruction unit. The car that Stephanie Vasquez, one of the victims who died at the crash, was driving was not registered in her name but was not stolen, O’Brien told MyMCMedia.

The police are also looking into whether alcohol was involved in the crash, O’Brien said. High speed was a factor according to O’Brien.

“Just looking at the devastation and violence caused by this crash,” He said. “It is clear that Toyota Supra was operating at a speed much higher than the posted speed limit.”

Many residents have complained that there is a lot of street racing in the crash area near Muddy Branch Road.

MyMCMedia’s Andrea Sarralde discussed the latest with O’Brien:

The three adult males from the Honda Accord are all expected to survive, O’Brien said.

Anyone that has information that may be relevant to the investigation, should call 240-773-6620.
