SALISBURY – It was August, not so long ago this year that a mother was charged to have been responsible for the death of her daughter. The woman was alleged to have killed her daughter in a car accident as she was under the influences of drugs. Recently, the 38-year-old Pennsylvania mother whom police arrested as responsible for her daughter’s death while driving impaired by drugs, has been dismissed.
The mother, identified as Tabitha Dobrzynski, a resident of New Kensington, Pa., was charged in Wicomico County after her 11-year-old daughter, identified as Sophia R. Dobrzynski, died in a motor vehicle accident in Salisbury on Aug. 5.
She was the operator of the vehicle which crashed and killed her daughter. Dobrzynski was charged with the following: negligent manslaughter by motor vehicle, life-threatening injury by motor vehicle — drugs, life-threatening injury by motor vehicle — controlled dangerous substance and CDS possession — not marijuana. She also made to face six other traffic charges, including four driving while impaired charges.
The single-vehicle accident took place at the southbound Route 13 Bypass.
However, Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matt Maciarello said that the have to dismiss the case as the Maryland State Police crime lab did not find levels of two drugs high enough to meet a threshold when testing. Although, the blood will also be analyzed by a private lab for other compounds that the MSP crime lab does not test for because it doesn’t have the capability to do so, Maciarello added.
Awaiting those results, they will finally decide whether or not they are going to go forward in prosecuting her, Maciarello concluded.
