Bel Air woman killed after truck hits her van

November 18, 1996|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Bel Air woman died Saturday of head injuries she suffered when a dump truck ran a red light and crashed into her van, state police said yesterday.

About 8 a.m. Friday, Tiffany Ann Wieneckle, 29, of the 500 block of Mauser Drive was driving south on Route 924 when her Dodge Caravan was struck on the driver's side by a Mack truck traveling north on Route 24, said Cpl. Larry Gordon of the Bel Air barracks.

Wieneckle suffered a compressed skull fracture and was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for surgery Friday, Gordon said. She died Saturday about 11 a.m., he said.

The truck driver, a 27-year-old Glen Burnie man, told police he could not stop because his brakes failed, Gordon said.

Charges may be filed against the truck driver after a police investigation and an inspection of the truck, Gordon said.
