The Florida Highway Patrol was looking yesterday for a car involved in a crash Sunday on Interstate 95 that killed a Harford County woman and injured four other Marylanders traveling to Miami to see the Orange Bowl game.

Police are searching for a vehicle that drifted into the left lane of southbound I-95 about 7 p.m. in Indian River County in central Florida and forced a rented sport utility vehicle carrying the five Marylanders into the median, said Lt. Pembrook Burrows of the Florida Highway Patrol. The SUV veered back onto the highway and flipped 3 1/2 times before it came to rest on the shoulder. The other car did not stop, Burrows said.

Catherine Elaine McGuire, 48, of the 100 block of S. Parke St. in Aberdeen, a passenger in the back seat, died of her injuries Monday morning at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne.

The sport utility vehicle was driven by Peter Andrew Tebin Sr., 41, of the 100 block of Vineyard Drive in Port Deposit. The other passengers were Molly Ann Parvis, 44, of the 1800 block of Dunwoody Road in Towson and Jodie Lynn Forton, 28, and her husband Richard Ernest Forton, 41, both of the 800 block of Tydings Road in Havre de Grace, Burrows said.

McGuire was sitting in the back seat with the Fortons; none of the three was wearing a seatbelt, Burrows said. Both front seat passengers were, he said.

McGuire was Jodie Forton's mother, and Parvis is Tebin's girlfriend, said Joseph Tebin, the driver's brother, who lives in Perryville. The group was traveling to Miami to watch the University of Maryland football team play in the Orange Bowl, he said. The game was last night.

Parvis was released yesterday from Indian River Memorial Hospital in Fort Pierce and Richard Forton was in satisfactory condition there, hospital officials said.

Jodie Forton and Peter Tebin were listed in fair condition at Holmes Regional Medical Center.
