Arnold woman killed, 2 people hurt in head-on collision on U.S. 50


An Arnold woman was killed early yesterday when the car she was driving west on eastbound U.S. 50 collided with an oncoming vehicle, seriously injuring its two occupants, state police in Annapolis reported.

Police said Patricia J. Dugan Pigott, 49, of the 1000 block of Rosslare Court was driving a 1984 Toyota Corolla in the eastbound lane of U.S. 50, east of the Route 2 interchange, when she collided head-on with a 1992 Mitsubishi about 2: 12 a.m.

Pigott was pronounced dead a short time later at Anne Arundel Medical Center, police said.

The driver of the Mitsubishi, Leslie E. Johnson, 48, of the 400 block of Colonial Ridge Lane in Annapolis, and his passenger, Antoinette C. Wallace, 52, of the 200 block of Hilton Lane in Annapolis, were airlifted to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, police said.

Last night, Johnson was in critical condition and Wallace in fair condition, police said.

Police said driver error and alcohol consumption by Pigott resulted in the accident.

Data being gathered on flood conditions

Anne Arundel County engineers are gathering information on flood conditions and water quality in the South River and its tributaries as part of a two-year study that will lead to better storm-water controls.

The study is a requirement of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for the county's storm drains and a recommendation of the draft General Development Plan pending before the County Council.

Questionnaires were distributed last month to citizens who live and work in the South River watershed through community leaders from neighborhoods in Annapolis Neck, Riva, Edgewater and Mayo.

Questionnaires are to be returned to the county by Sept. 29 to: Ron Etzel, MS 7301, Bureau of Engineering, Department of Public Works, 2662 Riva Road, Annapolis 21401-7374. To obtain a copy of the South River Watershed Management Plan Survey, call Customer Relations at 410-222-7585.
