Collision in Govans kills Towson woman, 52, riding in car

A Towson woman died early Saturday in the Govans area of the city after a car struck the vehicle in which she was a passenger, police said.

About 2:30 a.m., witnesses say, a Pontiac Sunbird driving north ran a red light at York and Beaumont roads, striking a Saturn making a left turn onto Beaumont, police said. The Pontiac pushed the Saturn into the northeast curb and onto its side, said Officer Richard J. McCarthy of Baltimore police accident investigation unit.

Dorothy Dolores Gwynn, 52, of the 200 block of Eudowood Lane suffered lacerations to her head and internal injuries. She was taken to Johns Hopkins Medical Center. Gwynn was the middle passenger in the rear seat of the vehicle. The other three passengers and the driver suffered minor injuries.

No one in the Pontiac was injured. The accident is under investigation, McCarthy said.
