Police unable to find which driver at fault in fatal accident

February 21, 1995|By From Staff Reports

State police have been unable to determine which driver ran a red light and caused an accident in Edgewood Saturday that killed a 54-year-old grandmother and injured her two young grandchildren.

Juanita Mae Jackson of the 2900 block of Ruskin Court in Abingdon, who was driving one of the two cars involved, was pronounced dead at the scene after the 5:30 p.m. collision, police said. Her grandson, Gregory Kane, 8, of Bel Air, was listed in fair condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital yesterday.

A hospital spokesman would not say when his sister, 6-year-old Lillianne Kane, was released.

A 16-year-old from Bel Air who was driving the other vehicle involved in the accident has not been charged, police said. He refused treatment at the scene.

The collision occurred where Route 755 intersects Route 24 near Interstate 95.

Ms. Jackson, driving a 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier, was turning left onto Route 24 from Route 755 when her car was struck on the driver's side by the juvenile's pickup truck, which was traveling south on Route 24, state police Sgt. William Kerner said.

Sergeant Kerner said witnesses' conflicting stories about which light was red have prevented him from accurately reconstructing the accident to determine which driver was at fault.
