PIKESVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a crash on the Baltimore Beltway has killed an elderly woman.
Police responded to the two-car collision Saturday evening on the inner loop of Interstate 695 at Park Heights Avenue. Police say a Toyota Camry collided with a Nissan Rogue.
Police say the driver of the Toyota lost control, striking a concrete barrier twice on the right side of the roadway before crossing the highway and crashing into the barrier on the left shoulder. A passing motorist stopped and helped the drive and passenger out of the car as it caught fire.
