Construction of New Dove Begins Next Month Man Indicted For

By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer Murder in Crash
The current Maryland Dove moored at Historic St.
Mary’s City, a replica of one of two ships which sailed That Killed Woman
from England and arrived here in 1634, is aging and
not especially accurate in a historical sense.
Ship builders on the Eastern Shore, with the Ches-
apeake Bay Maritime Museum, are about to change
On June 1 the construction of the new Maryland
Dove begins with the laying of the vessel’s keel at the
maritime museum located in St. Michaels.
William Gates, captain of the vessel anchored in lo-
cal waters, said the new ship will be sleeker, lighter
and more maneuverable than its current iteration;
more like the actual Dove that would have accompa-
nied the Ark on its voyage to the New World in the
17th century.
What’s more, the current Dove has serious struc-
tural integrity issues.
“The vessel is at 41 years old now,” Gates told The
County Times. “And… we’ve been discovering issues
with rot in some of the chambers.” The Maryland Dove

“It was like the family SUV,” Gates said.
On the day of the crash law enforcement officers lo-
cated Savoy, operating a vehicle in the area of Midway
Drive in Lexington Park. Savoy was wanted on numer-
ous outstanding warrants, including illegally possess-
ing and transporting a handgun. Officers attempted to
take Savoy into custody, however Savoy refused to stop
and a pursuit ensued, police reports stated. During the
pursuit, Savoy lost control of the vehicle he was operat-
ing while negotiating a curve on Pegg Road. Savoy’s
vehicle crossed the centerline of the roadway, and was
struck by Anderson’s vehicle.
Both vehicles caught fire and both drivers had to be
extracted; Anderson suffered burns to her left side.
Both Savoy and Anderson sustained serious injuries
from the crash; sources close to the investigation said
Savoy was not initially expected to live due to the se-
vere injuries he suffered.
Police found that Savoy was in possession of a hand-
gun once he had been pulled from the wreckage.
Last month a Circuit Court judge ordered that Savoy
be taken to a state-run hospital for examination to de-
termine if he was competent to stand trial.
