In reconstructing events in a fatal crash on Route 3 in Anne Arundel County, investigators obtained key evidence from a source many people probably don't know even exists: an air bag control module. The obscure part in the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by Elizabeth Haley Meyers showed the car came to a full stop before crossing the busy highway in front of a motorcycle that struck the car. That evidence refuted the statement of an eyewitness who told police he saw her texting without slowing down before pulling onto the highway from a shopping center.

State police say three people found dead Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash along a southbound ramp from Interstate 83 onto I-695 in Baltimore County had likely been there since early Sunday morning. Police said the crash site wasn't discovered for two days because it was far from the roadway and hidden by trees and brush. When a driver reported seeing something that looked like a vehicle in the woods Tuesday, police responded and found pieces of the car and the bodies of the three men. The discovery prompted an investigation that closed ramps at southbound I-83 onto the outer loop of the Beltway for more than six hours, from late afternoon into the evening.

Three people were killed in a single-car crash on a ramp at the intersection of two major Baltimore freeways Tuesday afternoon, State Police said. Early investigation suggested the vehicle was traveling southbound on Interstate 83 when, for reasons which have not been determined, it left the roadway and went into a heavily wooded area on the left side of the road and then struck a large tree, police said. The impact of the crash caused the car to break into pieces. Police received a call at around 4 p.m. from a citizen who said he saw a vehicle off the roadway on the southbound I-83 ramp on to the outer loop of Interstate 695 in Timonium, but the exact time of the accident is not known, according to a news release.
