A woman was killed in a Carroll County auto accident on Tuesday evening when her vehicle was struck by a tire that came off a Chevrolet Silverado truck. Elisabeth Catherine Osorio died at the Westminster, Maryland traffic crash site on Route 30.
Maryland State Police say that the rear tire first struck a Mazda before hitting the windshield of Osorio’s Subaru Legacy. Her auto then went through a fence. According to the York Daily Record, Jason M. Dempsey, the truck’s driver who is from Hanover, and New Oxford resident Andrew Timothy Nulty, who was driving the Mazda, declined medical treatment.
In other recent Maryland traffic accident news, a 24-year-old female driver was killed and her two passengers sustained injuries on Friday afternoon when the truck she was driving went off Interstate 70 and overturned. The woman, Ashley Marie Matthews, was ejected from her auto and died at the Howard County car crash scene. The two male passengers, 27-year-old Brandon Gaskins, who was reportedly critically injured, and 22-year-old Trevell Brookes, were flown to Baltimore and admitted to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Police are investigating whether alcohol and speed were factors in the Ellicott City, Maryland auto accident.
Meantime, police are trying to determine what caused a deadly Rockville motor vehicle accident at a local car wash. Driver error and mechanical difficulties are some of the reasons under consideration.
On the afternoon of December 29, 2010, a 1998 Jeep that employee Julio Cesar Coreas-Portillo was driving out of the car wash accelerated out of control to pin two workers beneath it. One of the victims, Gavino Euseda, died from his injuries. The other worker, Eusebio Oacan, sustained serious injuries.
