Three killed in weekend crashes in Baltimore, police say

Three people were killed in two separate fatal crashes in Baltimore over the weekend, police said.

Richard Brown, 50, and Ruth Brown, 53, died following a crash about midnight Sunday at Washington and Gay streets in East Baltimore, police said. A Honda Accord traveling south on Gay Street struck the Toyota Prius, which the Browns were passengers in, that had been headed north on Washington Street, police said.


The Browns were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where they were pronounced dead. The driver of the Prius, who police did not identify, was injured in the collision.

The driver of the Honda Accord bailed out of the car and ran away after the crash, leaving a 19-year-old trapped inside the vehicle, police said. Police did not give a suspect description. The trapped teenager was extracted from the vehicle and taken to a hospital for treatment. He was not identified.


The second crash happened about 11 p.m. Saturday in Northwest Baltimore.

Timolin Woolard, 55, died after a Chrysler Town & Country minivan crashed into the rear of her Chrysler Sebring convertible in the northbound lanes of the 1700 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway, police said. Four passengers in the Sebring were taken to hospitals for treatment, police said.

Family members of the Browns and Woolard could not be reached Monday for comment.
