Jenna Nicole Pollock, 15, of the 400 block of Ruby Drive in Aberdeen, died at the scene, the Sheriff's Office said in a follow up news release Friday morning.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the Nissan collided with a 2007 Ford Explorer pick-up truck operated by Harold Blume Jr., 62, of 1200 block of Annhurst Court in Belcamp.
Ellison was treated at the scene by medics from the Abingdon Volunteer Fire Company and then transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by Maryland State Police Medevac.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the Nissan was traveling south on Brass Mill Road when the head-on collision occurred. Speed is also being listed as a contributing factor in the crash, which remains under investigation, the Sheriff's Office said.
Police have not yet identified who was driving the Nissan, nor has it been positively determined where the victims were seated in the vehicle at the time of the crash, the Sheriff's Office said. Investigators will also seek to determine if the occupants were wearing seat belts.
