December 14, 1997|By Marcia Myers | Marcia Myers,SUN STAFF

A Pasadena mother and son died late Friday night in a head-on collision on the Sparrows Point viaduct near Bethlehem Steel Corp.

Peggy Watson, 55, and Clarence Charles Fox Jr., 28, both of the 800 block of Swift Road, died in the crash, which also seriously injured Fox's fiancee and an 11-year-old passenger.

The driver of the second car, Clifton Ken Phillip, 32, of the 800 block of Corktree Road in Baltimore County, suffered an ankle injury but declined treatment, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority. Police are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the accident.

Fox's fiancee, Jennifer L. Haislette, 17, also of the Swift Road address, was in critical but stable condition yesterday at Shock Trauma. Elizabeth Nicole Willis, 11, of Dean's Bank Road in North East, remained in intensive care in the Johns Hopkins Hospital pediatrics unit.
