A Walkersville resident died in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon, according to a Maryland State Police press release.
Emergency responders pronounced Doris Janet Kinnamont, 80, dead at the scene of a crash at U.S. 15 and Angleberger Road north of Lewistown at about 3:45 p.m. Kinnamont, driving a 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt, was at westbound Angleberger Road and U.S. 15 when she failed to yield the right of way to a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup driven by Jacob Lee Hanvey, 23, of Emmitsburg, according to the press release. Kinnamont tried to cross the northbound lanes of the highway and was struck by Hanvey’s truck on the driver’s side as he was traveling north.
Hanvey was taken by ambulance to Frederick Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, according to the release from state police.
The on-scene investigation of the crash is complete, and all lanes on the highway have been reopened, according to state police.
