A 67-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene of a car accident Tuesday morning in Glen Burnie, after the car she was driving and a truck collided, Anne Arundel County police said.

Police identified her as Wilda Scott of the 400 block of Ayrlawn Drive in Millersville. The other driver, Young Jea Kim, 52, of the 7800 block of Tall Pines Court in Glen Burnie, was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious injuries, police said.

Police said the early investigation of the crash that occurred around 11:11 a.m. indicates that Kim was driving a Chevrolet truck south on Crain Highway. Scott, driving a Honda Civic, appeared to be trying to leave the Tan Office Park in the 1400 block of Crain Highway South and pull across the three southbound lanes of Crain Highway to reach the median, police said.

Her car was struck in the driver's door by the truck and the vehicles went 200 feet after the impact, police said. Lt. Michael Brothers said a preliminary investigation suggested that alcohol, driver error and speed on the part of Kim may have contributed to the seriousness of crash.
