Two women were killed and two men injured early yesterday when a stolen Jeep Cherokee collided with a car at a Baltimore intersection, city police reported.

Officer Richard McCarthy, an accident investigator, said the 1998 Jeep Cherokee had been reported stolen in Baltimore County.

The Jeep was northbound in the 2400 block of Greenmount Ave. about 3:20 a.m. when the driver ran a red light and slammed into a 1998 Hyundai Accent that was eastbound on 25th Street, authorities said.

The driver of the Hyundai, Kenya C. Wilson, 22, of the 4800 block of Norwood Ave., and one of her two passengers, Katrina Smith, 25, of the 1700 block of N. Caroline St., died an hour later at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The other passenger, Terrell Brown, 26, of the 400 block of E. Lorraine Ave., was in critical condition.

McCarthy said the driver of the Jeep - a 43-year-old man whose name was withheld - suffered serious injuries, including a partially severed arm that doctors at Maryland Shock Trauma Center reattached. He also was in critical condition.

McCarthy said an unidentified male passenger in the Jeep fled and was being sought.
