A southbound car driven by Zachary Philip Brown, 18, was turning left from Ritchie Highway onto Church Street when it collided with a northbound Chevrolet Blazer driven by Gwen Marie Sammons, 18, of Glen Burnie, police said.

Sammons' vehicle struck Brown's on the passenger side, where 17-year-old Keri Ann Knott was sitting. Knott, who lived on Hickory Avenue in the Medfield section of Baltimore, was pronounced dead Monday night at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, authorities said.
