Two separate accidents in Anne Arundel County early Saturday morning sent two people to an area hospital with serious injuries, the Anne Arundel County Police Department said.  About 1:20 a.m. Saturday, a Lexus sedan stuck a Mercedes Benz on the northbound lanes of Ritchie Highway in Severna Park. The Lexus rolled over on its side and a passenger, Casey Brooke Barber, 22, of Pasadena, was thrown from the vehicle. Barber was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

Editorial from The Aegis and The Record | January 10, 2013
It wasn't that many years ago that the prospect of relatively few fatal accidents involving drugs or alcohol would have been presumed to coincide with relatively few fatal accidents altogether. As it turns out, the number of deadly vehicle collisions in Harford County in 2012 where drug or alcohol use was believed by police to have been a factor was zero, yet depending on how you count, the number of people killed on roadways in the county in the recently passed year was 31, making it the most deadly year for highway fatalities in about two decades.
