Two-Vehicle Crash Kills Maryland Woman

Posted on October 13, 2011 to

A 29-year-old Silver Spring woman lost her life in an auto accident late last month at the intersection of U.S. 29 and Tech Road, according to insidenova.com. The woman was a passenger inside a Hyundai Elantra at the time of the crash. The fatal car wreck occurred when the Hyundai Elantra collided with a BMW around 4:35 a.m.

According to police, the BMW had a flashing red light as the driver approached the intersection. The Elantra had a flashing yellow light as it approached the same intersection. However, investigators do now know at this time whether the 49-year-old BMW driver ran the red light. Police pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

Emergency personnel took the drivers of the BMW and Hyundai to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Investigators are still looking into the cause of the fatal crash. At this point, they do not know if alcohol or impairment played a role in the accident. The Montgomery County Collision Reconstruction Unit is helping with the investigation of the car accident.
