Woman's condition serious after collision

March 01, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A St. Louis woman injured Sunday when her car collided with a marked state corrections vehicle remained in serious condition yesterday, and Baltimore police said they have not determined who was at fault in the crash.

Alison Wiley Smith, 20, had to be cut from her 1995 Infiniti after the 9: 30 a.m. collision at North Avenue and Howard Street. She is being treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The correctional officer, Sgt. Tammy Vanskiver, was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital and released.

A police report released yesterday stated that Vanskiver was traveling east on North Avenue when her vehicle struck the Infiniti, which was traveling north on Howard. Both drivers told the investigating officer they had a green light. Police said witnesses' statements were inconsistent with both victims' stories and the evidence. No citations have been issued.
