A Baltimore woman died in a crash near Abingdon on I-95 that shut down the highway to northbound traffic for about five hours Wednesday evening, Maryland State Police reported.
Bryanna Marie Ey, 21, of Baltimore, was driving a 2000 Honda Accord in the far right lane near the Route 24 exit when she "made an erratic lane change" left shortly after 5 p.m., Sgt. Hunt of the Maryland State Police's JFK Barrack said Thursday morning.
The Honda was rear-ended by a tractor trailer, whose driver was unable to stop, sending Ey's car spinning into the far left lane of the highway and striking another vehicle there, Hunt said.
No one else was injured in the crash, he said.
Ey was pronounced dead at 7:06 a.m. after being flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma, he said.
Police are not aware of any drugs or alcohol contributing to the accident, he said.
The highway was not fully re-opened until 11 p.m., he said.
