About noon Saturday, Phillips was a passenger in a 1990 Plymouth being driven eastbound on U.S. 50 by Renee Lynn Boswell, 30, of La Plata, when it struck a 1979 Oldsmobile being driven northbound on Md. 818 by Harry D. Morris, 59, of Berlin.

Neither driver was injured and charges were pending, police said.
