Girl, 11, killed, 3 chil­dren crit­i­cally hurt in crash

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

An 11-year-old girl died and three chil­dren were in crit­i­cal con­di­tion af­ter a car crash Satur­day af­ter­noon in West Bal­ti­more, po­lice said. A ve­hi­cle car­ry­ing the chil­dren was trav­el­ing west on Fred­er­ick Av­enue “at a high rate of speed” shortly af­ter 4:30 p.m. when it crossed the dou­ble yel­low line and col­lided with an SUV, De­tec­tive Nicole Mon­roe said. The 11-year-old girl was thrown from the car, Mon­roe said. She was taken to Mary­land Shock Trauma Cen­ter, where she was pro­nounced dead. Three other chil­dren — an 11-year-old girl, a 9-year-old girl and a 6-yearold boy — were taken to hos­pi­tals, where they re­mained in crit­i­cal con­di­tion Sun­day, Mon­roe said. The driver of the SUV was not at fault, Mon­roe said. The 26-year-old driver of the ve­hi­cle car­ry­ing the chil­dren was found to be im­paired by al­co­hol, Mon­roe said. Al­co­hol and speed were con­tribut­ing fac­tors, she said. The man was taken into cus­tody, Mon­roe said. He did not pos­sess a valid Mary­land driver’s li­cense. A 35-year-old man who was a front pas­sen­ger in the ve­hi­cle that col­lided with the SUV was also in­jured. He was taken to a hospi­tal, but walked out be­fore be­ing dis­charged, po­lice said. The crash oc­curred in the 2800 block of Fred­er­ick Ave., in the Car­roll-South Hil­ton neigh­bor­hood.
