A 35-year-old Baltimore woman died Friday after running a red light on Telegraph Road in Jessup and crashing through a six-foot chain link fence after losing control of her vehicle, police said.
Christina Marie Tobash, of the 3700 block of Piedmont Ave., was ejected from the 2002 Ford Explorer she was driving after she swerved to avoid vehicles stopped at red light on Telegraph Road at Annapolis Road at 2:54 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Tobash was driving north on Telegraph Road when she approached vehicles stopped at the traffic signal. She continued through the red light, lost control and left the roadway, struck a curb and then a utility police, police said. The Explorer bounced off the pole, spun clockwise, overturned several times and crashed through the fence.
Police said speed appears to be a factor in the accident.
