A 65-year-old House of Delegates secretary was struck by a van and killed yesterday morning as she was walking across Benfield Boulevard near her Severna Park home. Several witnesses told Anne Arundel County police that the victim, Elizabeth Catherine Sherwood, did not stop -- apparently not seeing the eastbound Ford Aerostar van -- before stepping out onto Benfield at Kensington Road. The driver, Kellie Ann Demaio, 35, of Millersville, said she did not see the pedestrian because of glare from the sun on her windshield.
