A 52-year-old Arnold woman was killed Tuesday in a two-car crash in Anne Arundel County.

Sherry Lynn Hopkins of the 300 block of Volley Court died at the scene of the 8:21 a.m. accident on Baltimore and Annapolis Boulevard near Lower Magothy Beach Road.

Hopkins was driving a pick-up truck north on the right shoulder of the boulevard, when she abruptly re-entered a travel lane, lost control of her vehicle and crossed the double line into oncoming traffic. Her vehicle struck another pick-up and flipped into a ditch. Hopkins was ejected from her vehicle, police said.

The driver of the other vehicle was not injured. Hopkins' speed and aggressive driving contributed to the accident, police said.
