BEL AIR, Md. — Four people were killed and another person was injured in a crash along the Bel Air Bypass Monday.

Shortly before 1:40 p.m., Maryland State Police troopers responded to US Route 1 at Rock Spring Road in Bel Air for a two-vehicle head-on crash.

Officials say Mary Yvonne Mejia, 54, of Bel Air was driving a Toyota Rav4 north on Route1 over the Route 924 overpass, when she tried passing another vehicle, and crashed into an oncoming Honda Civic. The impact caused the Toyota to roll on its side and catch fire.

Troopers pulled three victims from the Toyota, including Mejia and Mary Catherine Blosse, 73, both who both died of their injuries.

The driver and the passenger of the Honda, Craig Charles Faunce, 34, and Allison Mae Faunce, 35, both of Joppa, also died on scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
