HOLLYWOOD, Md. (AP) — The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office says a woman has died two days after a two-vehicle collision in Hollywood. 

Deputies say on Dec. 4, a van driven by William Earl Jones Sr., 81, of Hollywood failed to yield the right of way at an intersection and struck a car driven by Emanuel Petrella, 77, of LaPlata.

Petrella and a passenger in his car, Constance Mary Petrella, were taken to local hospitals.

Authorities say Constance Petrella died Dec. 6. 

Jones was issued a traffic citation for failing to yield the right of way.
