A Dundalk woman who died after she drove her car the wrong way onto the Baltimore Beltway, striking another vehicle and killing a 3-year-old last month, had alcohol and painkillers in her blood, a police spokesman said.

DeAngelo and 3-year-old Lily Joseven Kelley of White Marsh died as a result of the Nov. 25 crash.

Kelley was riding in an SUV, driven by her mother, Kimberly Kaye Taylor, 29, along with her sister, Mackenzie Grace Kelley, almost 3 months old. Taylor and her younger daughter survived.

Police said DeAngelo, driving a sedan, drove the wrong direction eastbound Interstate 695 near the Curtis Creek drawbridge, striking an Taylor's SUV.
