A man was killed and a woman injured yesterday when their sport utility vehicle collided with a car in Howard County, police said.

About 2 p.m., Juan F. Dos Santos, 23, of the 400 block of Kent Ave. in Catonsville was driving a Mitsubishi Montero north on Route 29. He was weaving through traffic and passing other vehicles on the shoulder, police said.

As the vehicle re-entered the slow lane, it struck the right front of a Chevrolet Malibu, sending it across the northbound lanes and the grass median before it came to rest in the southbound lanes.

The Montero also crossed the northbound lanes and entered the median, where it overturned. Dos Santos and a passenger, Bianca Bacarreza, 20, of the 400 block of Blue Wing Court in Columbia, were thrown from the vehicle.

Dos Santos was killed. Bacarreza was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said. She was in serious condition last night.
