I am sorry to hear that you've been involved in an accident. You would need to obtain any crash report or accident scene investigation report from the jurisdiction that compiled it.

Jurisdiction can be a tricky area of the law. From the situation you described it certainly seems as though Maryland would have jurisdiction over the case.
