Two people were killed in separate single-vehicle crashes yesterday in Cecil County, including an Earleville woman who turned 19 yesterday.

Aubrey Lee Davis, 19, was driving east on Glebe Road a quarter-mile east of Fingerboard Schoolhouse Road in Earleville about 4:35 a.m. when her car drove up the embankment and flipped over five times, ejecting her through the back window, said state police at the North East Barracks. Davis died at the scene. Police said that Davis was not wearing a seat belt and that speed may have contributed to the crash.

In the other accident, a Jeep traveling west on Route 7 in Charlestown about 1 a.m. failed to navigate a curve at high speed, ran off the left side of the road, side-swiped two trees, struck a utility pole support wire and flipped over, police said. Wendy Jean Love-Morey, 34, of Charlestown died at the scene, police said.

William Isaac Johnson, 37, of North East was injured. He was taken to Christiana Hospital in Wilmington, Del., where he was treated, police said.
