A 21-year-old Sykesville woman was fatally injured in a one-vehicle accident early Saturday morning in Westminster, the Carroll County Sheriff's Office said.

Authorities say driver Adriana Maria Passaretti died after being taken to a Baltimore hospital. Passenger Kristopher Lee Myers, 23, of Union Bridge, was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Passaretti was behind the wheel of a 2006 Ford F-250 truck around 1 a.m. when she failed to negotiate a curve in the 1900 block of Nicodemus Road, the sheriff's office said. Investigators determined that the truck crossed the double yellow lane divider, left the road and crashed into trees.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
