A devastating crash in Dundalk Thursday night took the lives of two young women and left two young men in critical condition. 

Brittany Nicole Walker, 22, of the 400 block of Torner Road, 21221; and 20-year-old Gabrielle Pitts of the 7300 block of Chesapeake Road, 21220, were killed instantly when the Honda Prelude in which they were passengers was struck from behind by another vehicle.

The driver of the Prelude, Brandon Ardell Tsioumas, 21, of the 7500 block of Westfield Road, 21222; and the front-seat passenger, Jeff O'Connor, 20, of the 6900 block of Connelly Street, 21224,  remain in critical condition at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. 

Police responded to the crash on North Point Boulevard at Baltimore Street at 8:08 p.m.  The initial investigation reveals that the 1997 Honda Prelude was stopped at a red light, waiting to turn left onto Baltimore Street, when it was struck in the rear by a 2001 Ford Windstar van driven by Jason Robert Vance,33, of the 2500 block of Welsh Avenue, 21219.  The impact was so severe that Walker and Pitts, both rear seat passengers in the Honda, were killed instantly.
