Boy, 8, still in hospital after crash that killed woman, 21, and infant

ESSEX -- One person remained hospitalized yesterday, and an investigation continued into a crash on Route 702 that killed an infant in a stroller and a friend of the family Tuesday.

Daniel Reedy, 8, was in good condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was hurt when a station wagon driven by his mother, 37-year-old Maria Diana Reedy, slammed into Kia-Denise Hughes, 21, and 15-month-old Leearna McKenny, killing Hughes and McKenny. Another pedestrian, Janice Lakesha Scott, 22, was treated and released, as was Reedy's other son, Nicholas, 12, a passenger in the station wagon.

Police said no charges have been filed against Reedy or 63-year-old Irene Elizabeth Klingenstein, whose sport-utility vehicle hit the station wagon.

Woman, 83, critically hurt when hit by MTA bus

An 83-year-old woman was critically injured yesterday when she was hit by a Mass Transit Administration bus, apparently while trying to cross a street in Southeast Baltimore, city police said.

Tribuna Bambina of the 3400 block of Bank St. suffered a leg injury and was in critical condition at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, according to police. They said she was hit about 10 a.m. as she tried to cross Bank Street at South Highland Avenue.

MTA spokesman Frank Fulton said the No. 22 bus, whose driver he refused to identify, was turning onto Bank Street from Highland Avenue and struck the woman in the middle of the street. Police said they are trying to determine who had the right of way.
