An Annapolis woman was killed and two other drivers were hospitalized in a four-vehicle crash in Arnold on Thursday morning, according to Anne Arundel police.
Patricia Ann Krzeminski, 77, was driving her 2002 Chrysler Sebring eastbound on College Parkway near Shore Acres Road, when she drifted across the center line, possibly due to a medical condition, police said.
Krzeminski struck a 1994 Chevrolet Prism, which spun around clockwise. Krzeminski's Sebring then continued eastbound in the wrong lane and struck a 2001 Honda Odyssey taxi.
Krezeminski's Sebring spun around in the westbound lane and was hit by 2008 Ford Mustang. The Mustang's brakes locked up as the driver tried to stop before the crash, police said.
Krezeminski was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Prism was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center with minor injuries and the driver of the Honda taxi was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious injuries, police said. The taxi driver was in critical condition Thursday night.
Police said there's no evidence that alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash. They also said none of the drivers were speeding excessively.
College Parkway was shut down from the time of the crash at 10:40 a.m. until 2 p.m.
