A Churchville woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash Thursday while exiting her neighborhood, Maryland State Police said.
Elizabeth A. Wald, 19, of Churchville was killed at approximately 5:55 a.m. while attempting to make a left from Rolling Road onto Route 136. State police said her 2001 Saturn LS failed to yield the right-of-way to a northbound Ford F-450 utility truck driven by Edwin L. Bowman Jr., 48, of Churchville and was struck on the driver’s side of her vehicle.
Both vehicles came to rest against an electric pole approximately 100 feet north of Rolling Road, state police said. Wald was pronounced dead at the scene. Bowman suffered non life-threatening injuries in the crash. Neither speed nor alcohol were believed to be a factor in the crash, according to state police.
Route 136 was closed for several hours between Cool Spring Road and Route 22 while the utility pole was replaced and an investigation was conducted.
