Dunkirk woman, 48, killed in head-on collision in Arundel

September 18, 2007

A Dunkirk woman was killed when her minivan was struck head-on in southern Anne Arundel County, police said yesterday.

Barbara Jackson Ash, 48, was declared dead at the scene of the crash on Route 2 at Polling House Road in Harwood about 5 p.m. Saturday, after her 2000 Honda Odyssey was hit.

Justin M. Sellman, 20, of the 3000 block of Beards Point Road in Davidsonville, was driving a 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis north when it crossed the centerline into Ash's path, police said.

The Honda spun halfway around and veered off the road, while his car crossed back over the centerline and came to rest on the northbound side of the road.

Ash's 9-year-old daughter sustained multiple injuries and was flown to Washington Hospital Center, where she was in serious condition.

Sellman was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

The driver behind Sellman's car told police that the vehicle had been swerving in the road before the collision.

Police are investigating.
