Millersville teen facing automobile manslaughter charge

A Millersville teenager has been indicted on automobile manslaughter and six other counts stemming from the death of another driver after a crash last summer.

An Anne Arundel County grand jury's indictment of Elizabeth Ramirez, 19, was unsealed Monday, according to court records. She was on probation from a previous traffic citation at the time of July 31 wreck in Crofton, court records show.

Police said she was the driver of an SUV that turned left into an oncoming car on Route 3 near Davidsonville Road. The driver of that car, Javaid Firdaus, 63, of Glen Burnie, later died at a hospital, police said. A May 31 trial date was set, according to court records.

District Court records show that Ramirez had been stopped by Anne Arundel police last February in the Old Mill area and charged with driving on a learner's permit without the necessary supervision.

In April, Anne Arundel County District Court Judge Jonas Legum gave her three years' probation before judgment for driving without a required license, fined her and ordered a 60-day suspended sentence. Other charges were dropped.
