Car flips, hits pole, killing woman, 50
A Glen Burnie woman was killed when she lost control of her car in Pasadena, flipping it and ramming into a utility pole, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.
Eileen Marie Artley Rey, 50, was traveling north on Fort Smallwood Road about 10:50 a.m. Sunday at more than 100 mph, police said, when she failed to negotiate a curve, drove across the center median, crossed over the southbound lanes, and drove off the west side of the roadway.
Her 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo struck a drainage ditch, which caused it to rotate while overturning. While traveling sideways, the vehicle struck a utility pole on the corner of the BP gas station at Fort Smallwood and Sycamore roads.
When Rey's vehicle hit the utility pole, it bent in half and wrapped around the pole. The engine came to rest in the middle of the parking lot. Rey was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead shortly after arrival at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Two vehicles stopped at the gas station to pump gas sustained minor damage when they were stuck by debris from Rey's vehicle.
