Hild­ner, 75, bat­tled se­vere in­juries for sev­eral days be­fore she was pro­nounced dead at ap­prox­i­mately 4:17 p.m. on Sun­day, ac­cord­ing to a Mary­land State Po­lice press re­lease.

Po­lice are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the cir­cum­stances of the crash.

Around 4:06 p.m. on Aug. 9, state troop­ers re­sponded to a se­ri­ous mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on Route 6 at Mary Drive, a press re­lease states. Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­di­cated that Hild­ner had been trav­el­ing west­bound on Route 6 in a Honda Pi­lot as a woman driv­ing a Hyundai Santa Fe trav­eled east­bound with five chil­dren in the car. For un­known rea­sons, Hild­ner crossed over the cen­ter line and into on­com­ing traf­fic and col­lided head-on with the Santa Fe.

All oc­cu­pants of the Santa Fe were trans­ported to a nearby hos­pi­tal to be treated, while Hild­ner was air­lifted to Inova Fairfax Hos­pi­tal in Virginia, where she later died from her in­juries.

Any­one who may have wit­nessed this crash is asked to con­tact the MSP La Plata Bar­rack duty of­fi­cer at 301-392-1200. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing and be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by Tfc. K. Robin­son.
