A 20-year-old Woodbine woman has died from injurie received in a two-car collision in Columbia Friday night, Howard County police said.

Jennifer Lynne Turner of the 3600 block of Jennings Chapel Road died at 4 p.m. Monday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, a spokeswoman said.

Ms. Turner was a passenger in a Mitsubishi headed eastbound on Route 175 shortly before 10 p.m. Friday.

Her car was struck by a Ford Tempo that turned into the intersection after having been stopped at a red light in the left-turn lane of westbound Route 175 at Tamar Drive, witnesses told police.

The Tempo was driven by George G. Rodgers of the 100 block of Overbrook Road in Baltimore. Mr. Rodgers, 52, is an editor at The Sun.

He and the driver of the Mitsubishi, David Timothy Cauley, 22, of the 3300 block of Brantley Road in Glenelg, were taken to Howard County General Hospital, where they were treated and released, a nurse said.

Ms. Turner was taken to the Trauma Center.

Alcohol and speed were not factors in the accident, police said.

An investigation continues and charges are pending, said police, who would not detail the charges.
