The drivers of a U.S. Postal Service delivery vehicle and a car remained hospitalized yesterday after a collision Saturday afternoon near Fort Smallwood Road and Elizabeth Landing Way in Pasadena, Anne Arundel County police said.

Tammy Marie Kelly, 47, of the 8400 block of Miramar Road in Pasadena was driving a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser north on Fort Smallwood Road about 5 p.m. when she crossed the center turn lane and crashed head-on into the postal truck, which had entered Fort Smallwood Road from Elizabeth Landing Way, police said.

Kelly and the driver of the postal vehicle, Thomas Ronald Ray, 57, of the 700 block of 222nd St. in Pasadena, were taken by ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. A spokeswoman there said Kelly was in fair condition and Ray in serious condition yesterday.
