One person is dead and another is injured after a car T-boned another one at U.S. 40 and Bowers Road past the Golden Mile.
At about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, a driver in a white Chevrolet traveling south on Bowers Road tried to cross U.S. 40 into the eastbound lanes when a gray Acura SUV traveling west on U.S. 40 T-boned the Chevrolet, according to Cpl. Adam Merkelson with Maryland State Police. Merkelson believed the driver of the Chevrolet did not stop at the stop sign on Bowers Road.
The driver of the Chevrolet, a woman, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Merkelson. She was not identified by authorities. The driver of the Acura was flown to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious injuries, he said. That person was also not identified.
The westbound lanes of U.S. 40 were closed at southbound Bowers Road just after the crash.
He said no charges will be filed because the driver of the Chevrolet was found to have been at fault.
