1 dead, 2 hurt in serious crash in Anne Arundel Co

The Maryland State Police Crash Team is conducting a detailed crash reconstruction, and the investigation continues. The other person in the auto, a 26-year-old woman from Kingston, was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Plymouth, and later died from her injuries. As troopers dispatched, additional calls were received reporting the crash.

A woman died Wednesday in a wrong-way crash on U.S. Route 50 outside of Annapolis, Maryland, police said.

Police say her auto was traveling in the wrong direction and crashed head-on with the unidentified man's vehicle.

A double yellow line extends the length of the road, however, the west end of the road is connected to an exit ramp off of Route 50 for eastbound travelers meant only for one-way traffic. She was headed westbound in the eastbound lanes of Route 50 and struck Skidmore's 2016 Mercedes SUV head on, police said, causing it to go off the highway into a wooded area.

Police haven't yet determined which woman was driving the vehicle. Lots of traffic, a auto just went the wrong way! It was also not known where Murphy had initially gotten on Route 50, police said. Westbound Route 50 is open to traffic.

He was pronounced dead by emergency medical personnel at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. "They're looking at impairment, which will come from the autopsy results", Russo said.

Investigators are also looking at signage on the roads and whether that had anything to do with Murphy's decision-making.

Another vehicle was involved in the crash, but that driver was not injured, police said.
