The Maryland State Police Crash Team is currently investigating a fatal crash involving a pedestrian in Anne Arundel County. The incident occurred on the outerloop of I-695, west of MD 295, in Linthicum Heights, shortly after 9:20 p.m. last night.
According to reports, a black Mazda CX-5 driven by Deja Sharvon May, 26, of Baltimore, was involved in a three-vehicle crash at the location. May had a six-year-old passenger in the vehicle at the time of the crash. The child was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital by ambulance.
The driver of a Kia Optima involved in the crash was also transported to St. Agnes Hospital for injuries sustained in the incident. The third vehicle involved was an Acura MDX, and there were no reported injuries from that vehicle.
Following the three-vehicle crash, May jumped over the concrete jersey wall for reasons unknown at this time and ran into oncoming traffic on the innerloop of I-695.
