A 13-year-old Taneytown girl was killed Sunday night when the car she was riding in collided with an oncoming vehicle on Route 194 in Germany Township, Pa.

Christi Glacken of the 100 block of East Baltimore Street and a student at Northwest Middle School died as a result of injuries she received in the accident.

She was riding with Tracy Glacken, 18, in a 1989 Dodge Daytona shortly after 9:30 p.m. when Ms. Glacken lost control of the vehicle in the 1800 block of the Frederick Pike, according to State Police in Gettysburg, Pa. The accident happened just north of the state line, between Taneytown and Littlestown, Pa.

Tracy Glacken swerved across the center line and into the path of a Lincoln being driven south by Ann Bulich, 27, from Atlantic, Pa.

Tracy Glacken's passenger side front fender struck the front corner on the driver's side of Ms. Bulich's car, which stopped on impact. Ms. Glacken's car was knocked across the northbound lanes and off the road, police said.

Adams County Coroner Pat Leinbaugh pronounced Christi Glacken dead at the scene.

The three passengers in Ms. Bulich's vehicle, Melvin Bulich, 28, Christopher Bulich, 11, and Christi Bulich, 8, were uninjured in the accident.

Tracy Glacken was listed in serious condition at The York Hospital. Ann Bulich was in satisfactory condition at The Gettysburg Hospital.

Pennsylvania State Police said they do not know how the drivers and passengers in each car were related.

Emergency fire and medical units from Kingsdale, Littlestown and Gettysburg in Adams County, Pa., and from Taneytown were called to the scene.
