The driver of a vehicle involved in a crash on MD Route 30 (Hanover Pike) that closed the road for hours this morning has died.

The driver, Dinora Aracely Flores (33) of the unit block of Valley Park Court in Damascus, was stopped in the left turn lane of northbound Route 30 at Rue Saint Lo Drive in her 2013 Ford Fusion around 7 a.m. She was rear-ended by a flatbed truck traveling north on Route 30, which pushed her into the oncoming path of a tractor-trailer truck that was traveling southbound on Route 30 through the intersection.

Flores was transported to Sinai Hospital but died around 11 a.m.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team is continuing their investigation into this deadly crash.

Baltimore County Police are investigating a shooting in the 1300 block of Sugarwood Circle, 21221 after the victim responded to MedStar Franklin Square Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound.
