March 27, 2012|By Mary Gail Hare, The Baltimore Sun

A New York woman died Monday, when the van she was driving sideswiped a trash truck and struck a tree in the Severn area of Anne Arundel County.

Shirley Walker-Lloyd, 76, of West Islip, was driving north at 11:07 a.m. on Quarterfield Road near Myers Drive, when her van began swerving. She crossed the center line, hit the trash truck, swerved back to the north lane and ultimately drove off the road and struck a tree, police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene. She was not wearing a seatbelt, police said. The truck driver and his passenger were not injured. Speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash, police said.
