Just before 1:00 a.m. on Jan. 30th, a trooper in a marked Maryland State Police patrol car was monitoring traffic in the area of eastbound Rt. 100 near Snowden River Parkway, when a vehicle entered radar at a speed of 70 mph in a posted 55 mph zone.  The trooper activated his emergency lights in an attempt to stop the Honda Accord.  The driver of the Honda, later identified as Diaz-Valle, immediately accelerated and quickly took the exit for Rt. 103.

Within seconds, the trooper lost sight of the vehicle but continued in the same direction.  Minutes later, the trooper came upon the scene of the crash on Rt. 103, just east of Rt. 1.

The driver of the vehicle that struck Chong’s car is identified as Natalia Diaz-Valle, 18, of Jessup, Md. She was driving a 2007 Honda Accord.

The preliminary investigation indicates Diaz-Valle failed to stop for a red light at Rt. 1 and Rt. 103.  Chong was turning out of a fast food restaurant parking lot onto westbound Rt. 103, when he was struck in the driver’s door by the oncoming Honda driven by Diaz-Valle.

The preliminary investigation indicates Diaz-Valle failed to stop for a red light at Rt. 1 and Rt. 103.  Chong was turning out of a fast food restaurant parking lot onto westbound Rt. 103, when he was struck in the driver’s door by the oncoming Honda driven by Diaz-Valle.

The accused drug dealer in Diaz-Valle’s car was identified as Phillip L. Dorsey, 21, of 8726 Mission Road, Jessup, Md. 

Biik Chong killed by suspected DUI driver who fled from trooper

Maryland State Trooper Jason Montana charged Dorsey with possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.  The charges were filed after more than 120 suspected Xanax pills were found hidden on Dorsey when he arrived at the hospital.  Dorsey was taken to Howard County central booking center where he had an initial appearance before a court commissioner and was released on bond on Jan. 30, 2017.

The trooper is not the only one to recently pursue Dorsey as the Baltimore County Office of Child Support Enforcement filed against him on Jan. 26, 2017, representing Betty Louise Atkins.

Dorsey also has a criminal case pending in Howard County where he faces charges of possession with the intent to distribute narcotics on Sept. 24, 2016, filed by Howard County Police Officer Brian Reger. Dorsey has a taxpayer provided attorney, Carol A. Hanson, provided to defend him on the charge of dealing drugs.   A warrant was served on that charge, and he was jailed and released the same day. Dorsey has a preliminary hearing set for Feb. 10, 2017.

Dorsey was the passenger in a vehicle that fled from a state trooper attempting to stop it for speeding just before 1:00 a.m. on Jan. 30th on Rt. 100 near Snowden River Parkway.  After fleeing from the trooper, the vehicle Dorsey was riding in was involved in a fatal crash on Rt. 103 just east of Rt. 1.  The driver of the vehicle struck by the car Dorsey was in, Biik Chong, 26, of 1242 Ten Oaks Road, Halethorpe, Md., was killed.

Chong was from Burma, and when charged with trespassing in Prince George’s County, Md., a Burmese interpreter was provided for the trial. The prosecutor dropped the charges. Anne Arundel Police Officer Ernest Sasser charged Chong with driving with a suspended registration and failing to provide insurance for his 2007 Dodge Charger on Arundel Mills Blvd. at Arundel Way on Sept. 24, 2015. For the trial on Dec. 4, 2015, the court made arrangements for a Burmese interpreter.

The passenger in Chong’s vehicle was identified by police as Lian M. Kung, 44, of Halethorpe, Md.  He is being treated for injuries at the UMD R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

Both Diaz-Valle and Dorsey were transported to the UMD R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where they were treated and released.  Upon their release, both were transported to the Maryland State Police Waterloo Barrack.

The preliminary investigation indicates speed and alcohol are possible contributing factors.  Investigators are in contact with the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office.

The investigation into the fatal crash is being continued by troopers at the Maryland State Police Waterloo Barrack, who are being assisted by investigators from the State Police Criminal Enforcement Division.  Troopers are applying for a search warrant for the Honda.
