83-year-old Harford woman dies from car accident injuries

An 83-year-old woman died Sunday from injuries she sustained in a single vehicle accident in Joppa last week.

On Thursday around 2 p.m., Catherine Josephine Miller, of Joppa, was driving a Nissan Sentra south on Joppa Road toward Trimble Road, according to Harford County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Monica Worrell.

For reasons unknown Mrs. Miller drove through the stop sign, across Trimble Road and onto Lohr's Lane before hitting a garbage can and a tree, according to Worrell. When the vehicle hit the tree, it rolled over.

Mrs. Miller, who was alone, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, Worrell wrote in an e-mail the morning following the accident.

Mrs. Miller had a serious head injury and was flown by Maryland State Police Medevac to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, Worrell added. She died as a result of blunt trauma from the accident, Worrell wrote in an e-mail Tuesday morning.

Mrs. Miller's death was the second on Harford County highways in 2012. There were 23 traffic related deaths in Harford last year.
