The Harford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal Sunday crash that left an Edgewood woman dead and sent two children to the hospital.
Linda Diamond, 59, of Edgewood, was pronounced dead at the hospital after a head-on collision between her Hyundai Santa Fe and a Chevrolet Silverado that occurred about 2:32 a.m. Sunday in the 1400 block of Trimble Road.
Diamond was taken to University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, where she later died, according to the sheriff’s office.
Two 11-year-old passengers in Diamond’s Hyundai were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment of their injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening, police said. A 3-year-old who was also in the vehicle was not injured, the office reported.
The Silverado’s driver, Philip Buchanan, 33, of Edgewood, refused treatment, police said.
Initial investigation suggests that Buchanan was traveling westbound on Trimble Road when for he crossed the center line for unknown reasons and his Silverado struck the Hyundai head-on, according to police. Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash.
The investigation is ongoing, and the sheriff’s office has asked anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has any information to call the office’s traffic unit at 443-409-3324.
