ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, md. — A woman was killed after a head-on crash in Anne Arundel County.

On Monday night, around 7:00 p.m., officers responded to the area of W. Chesapeake Beach Rd and Sansbury Road for a two vehicle head-on collision.

Police say a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze was following a Dodge Ram when the Chevrolet crossed the centerline and attempted to pass the Dodge truck in a no passing zone. The Chevrolet then drove completely into the opposite lane of travel into a 2012 Honda Accord. The two cars collided head-on and came to rest off of the roadway.

Three passengers were taken to shock trauma. At 4:30 a.m, Mary Char-Lynn Phipps was pronounced dead as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.
