A woman was killed and sev­eral peo­ple in­jured Thurs­day in a two ve­hi­cle col­li­sion in Brandy­wine, au­thor­i­ties re­port.

Po­lice have iden­ti­fied the woman as Wil­low Kearse Rice, 68, of Clin­ton.

On May 12 at ap­prox­i­mately 8:21 p.m., Mary­land State Po­lice troopers re­sponded to U.S. 301 near Chadds Ford Road for a re­ported mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent.

In­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that Rice was in the front pas­sen­ger seat of a Nis­san Max­ima as it trav­eled north­bound on 301.

For un­known rea­sons, the driver lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle and en­tered the south- bound lanes. An on­com­ing Ford Ex­pe­di­tion then col­lided into the pas­sen­ger side of the Max­ima, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

Rice was pro­nounced dead at the scene. The driver and a back­seat pas­sen­ger of the Max­ima were taken by he­li­copter to Prince Ge­orge’s Hospi­tal Cen­ter for their in­juries.

All six oc­cu­pants of the Ex­pe­di­tion were trans­ported by am­bu­lance to a lo­cal hospi­tal to be treated.

Any­one who may have wit­nessed this crash is asked to con­tact Cpl. J. Zim­mer­man of the Mary­land State Po­lice CRASH Team at 301-3921231. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.
