Law enforcement officers with the Westminster Police Department are investigating a fatal wreck on Maryland 31. The accident, which claimed the life of a 74-year-old Westminster woman, took place on April 27 near Uniontown Road.
Sources report the accident involved three vehicles. A 31-year-old man driving a 2002 Saturn was reportedly heading northbound on Maryland 31 when he allegedly failed to slow for stopped traffic at a red light. Police say he then collided with a stopped Toyota Corolla being driven by a Westminster man. According to officers, the force of that collision caused the Saturn to then veer off into oncoming traffic, where his car then struck the 74-year-old woman's 2016 Dodge head-on.
