On August 12, 2008 Kelay Smith was killed by a motorist as she walked along a section of road on Pennsylvania Avenue where there was no sidewalk or guardrail. Ms. Smith and Derrick Jones were walking on the shoulder of the road when a vehicle veered and hit the two. Mr. Jones died at the scene and Ms. Smith, who was five moths pregnant was taken to the hospital. Both Ms. Smith and her unborn child did not survive.

 The section of road that the two were on was owned was maintained by the State of Maryland. During the wrongful death trial filed by the family of Ms. Smith the jury found that the State of Maryland was liable for the accident. $2.5 Million was awarded to Ms. Smith's daughter who was 2 at the time of the accident and $800,000 to the mother of Ms. Smith.
