Woman driving impaired crashes car, killing her own infant in Maryland



An Anne Arundel County woman was arrested Wednesday on manslaughter and impaired driving charges in the 2021 crash that killed her infant. 30-year-old Talaya Martin of Severn faces a list of charges including first-degree child abuse resulting in death, negligent vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent vehicular manslaughter, negligent vehicular homicide, child abuse, and DUI, authorities said.

The charges stem from a criminal indictment handed down in March by a jury tasked with reviewing the deadly April 2021 crash on Route 295 in Anne Arundel County. Around 4:30 a.m. on April 4, 2021, troopers were called to a two-vehicle crash on Route 29 near Route 100, where they found a Ford SUV resting on its side off the road and a Honda car that was still in the roadway.

Martin’s 9-month-old boy, Ezekiel, was not buckled into a cart seat. He died at the scene. Martin was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma, where she was treated for her injuries. The other driver was not hurt.
