Maryland State Police spokeswoman Elena Russo said Pennslyvania state troopers had been trying to stop the vehicle at around 2.30pm as it matched the description of a suspect vehicle seen in Maryland.

The vehicle, which had Vicosa, Bynum, and his two girls inside, drove off the road and ultimately crashed into a fence, Russo explained.

The two juveniles were located in the backseat of the vehicle, which was filled with a thick smoke after the crash.

One of the girls was flown to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead there.

Vicosa reportedly took his children after assaulting their mom.

...This victim was later released unharmed....

According to WGAL, Vicosa was a 17-year veteran with the Bounty Police Department in Maryland.
