LEONARDTOWN, Md. (AP) — The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office says a South Carolina woman died when her car was hit by a truck after she drove the wrong way on a road.
Police say about 5:45 a.m. on Friday, Heather Rae Woy, 61, of Summerville, S.C. was traveling north in the southbound lane of Route 5. Deputies say Woy made a U-turn in the middle of Route 5 and made a left turn toward a convenience store.
Police say Woy’s car was hit on the driver’s side by a truck driven by Thomas Edward Adams Jr., 19, of LaPlata.
Woy died of injuries sustained in the crash.
Deputies say speed or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash. They ask that witnesses contact them.
