A 74-year-old woman died Wednesday following a three-car crash in Westminster, Westminster Police said. 

The crash happened about 4 p.m. around Route 31 and Uniontown Road. Police said a 2002 Saturn, driven by Michael A. Johnson, 31, of Union Bridge was traveling north on Route 31 when he didn't stop at a red light, and collided with the back of a Toyota Corolla driven by Silverio V. Lopez, 29, of Westminster. 

Johnson then crossed the center line and hit a 2016 Dodge driven by Margaret A. Myers of Westminster. 

Myers was taken to Carroll Hospital Center with serious injuries, then to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she died. 

Johnson and Lopez both sustained minor injuries. 

An investigation is ongoing.
