Phoenix woman, 84, dies after car crash

A 84-year-old Phoenix woman died Sunday after her car collided with another vehicle in Baltimore County, police said yesterday.

Lillian Ball North of the first block of Constantine Drive was driving a 1999 Toyota Camry north on Dulaney Valley Road near Ridgely Road in the Timonium area about 3:15 p.m. Sunday when she crossed the double yellow line, police said. Her vehicle struck a southbound 2003 Toyota Tacoma driven by Myranda Lee Thrash, 27, of 17400 block of Troyer Road in Monkton.

North was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she died, police said. Thrash was taken to Sinai Hospital where she is listed in good condition.

FOR THE RECORD - A headline in Tuesday's editions gave an incorrect date for an antique car show to be held at Ladew Topiary Gardens. The day for the show, which was correct in the article, is Sunday.
The Sun regrets the errors.

The body of David William Richardson of the 6900 block of Copeleigh Road was found June 21 in his bedroom, police said. Richardson's mother called police that day, concerned about her son after she had not talked to him in several days, police said.

The mother met police officials at Richardson's home and let officers in with a key. Richardson's body was found in his bedroom during a search of the house, police said.
