An 81-year-old Florida woman was fatally injured yesterday when her car collided with a pickup truck, state police said.
The woman, whose name was not released pending notification of relatives, was westbound on Old Liberty Road in a Cutlass Ciera station wagon about 4 p.m. when it entered the intersection with Route 97.
Mark Edward Hartman, 35, of Westminster was northbound on Route 97 in a Ford Ranger pickup truck when the two vehicles collided, pushing the station wagon into the guardrail at the northwest corner of the intersection.
He and his passenger, whose name was not known, were taken to Carroll County General Hospital by ambulance.
The Florida woman, who was unconscious, was taken by ambulance to a MedEvac helicopter that had landed on Route 97 south of the intersection. She was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she died last night.
