Kristy Renee Conners, 44, of Mount Airy, was pronounced dead at the scene of an early morning crash on Md. 26 in the New Windsor postal code near Taylorsville. The Maryland State Police investigation is ongoing.
According to a news release from state police, the crash occurred at about 4:55 a.m. on Md. 26 (Liberty Road) at Hooper Road.
Preliminary investigation suggests that Conners’ vehicle, a gray Mazda, lost control while traveling east on Md. 26, striking a guardrail on the right side of the road. It then crossed the double yellow line and struck a white Chevrolet Silverado head-on, according to the release.
The two vehicles came to an uncontrolled stop and a third vehicle, a maroon Dodge Ram that was traveling eastbound, then struck the Mazda, according to the release.
The driver of the Silverado was transported to Carroll Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the release.
Emergency responders from New Windsor, Winfield, Sykesville and Libertytown provided service at the scene.
The road was closed for about three hours between Roop Road and Franklinville Road, and the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration assisted with the closure.
Police continue to investigate the crash.
