November 28, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

One person was killed and two others critically injured last night in an accident on Route 108 in the Glenmont neighborhood of Columbia.

Police said a white Acura was traveling east on Route 108 at speeds estimated as high as 100 mph when the driver lost control and hit a stand of trees.

The impact ejected a female passenger in the back seat who was not wearing a seat belt, according to police. The unidentified victim was declared dead at the scene.

The driver, a female teen-ager, was trapped in the car for more than an hour. She was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. A male passenger, who climbed out of the wrecked car, also was taken to Shock Trauma. No names were released last night.

Police say they found an alcohol container in the car and a preliminary investigation indicated drinking might have been a factor in the crash.
