A late night crash in Dundalk killed a 51-year-old woman crossing Holabird Avenue yesterday.

The initial investigation indicates that the woman, identified as Theresa Lynn Pingley of the 7200 block of Holabird Avenue, 21222, was crossing Holabird Avenue just west of Stengel Avenue around 10:25 p.m. when she was struck by a GMC Acadia. The woman was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where she was pronounced deceased about an hour after the crash.

The 36-year-old driver and a 23-year-old passenger of the GMC were not injured during the crash. They did remain at the scene.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to work to determine factors involved in this fatal crash.

Route 702 at East Homberg Avenue in Essex was closed through the afternoon commute while Baltimore County Police Crash Team investigators were on the scene of a serious crash, resulting in the death of an 83-year-old man.

The preliminary investigation indicates that just before 2:40 p.m. a Toyota Corolla was traveling westbound on East Homberg Avenue crossing Route 702 when it was struck on the passenger side by a Dodge Charger traveling southbound on Route 702, causing the Corolla to roll.

The driver of the Charger, a 32-year-old man, was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries by Maryland State Police Medevac. The driver of the Corolla suffered cardiac arrest at the scene and was transported to MedStar Franklin Square Hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 3:37 p.m. He is identified as Marion Joseph Krolikowski (83) of the 1700 block of Hilltop Avenue, 21221.

Crash investigators continue to work to determine the factors involved in the cause of this fatal crash.

UPDATE (April 9, 2019 1:03 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have identified the two 15-year-old suspects that assaulted and seriously injured two men and a juvenile with a knife Sunday night in Windsor Mill.

Jermaine Isaiah Foster (15) and Jordan Tyrone Foster (15), both of the 2500 block of Elesmere Drive, 21244 have been charged as adults with two counts each of Attempted First Degree Homicide and three counts each of First Degree Assault. Both are being held by Baltimore County Corrections on denied bail status pending bail review hearings.

Original Release (April 8, 2019 4 p.m.):

Two teenage boys are being charged as adults following a triple stabbing in Windsor Mill last night.

The boys, both 15 years old, were arrested shortly after midnight following a physical fight with three neighbors in which at least one of the suspects pulled out knife and stabbed the victims. Police were called to the 2500 block of Elesmere Drive, 21244 around 7:45 p.m. for the fight, which left an 18-year-old man suffering from life-threatening wounds to the upper body, a 40-year-old man suffering non-life threatening wounds to the upper body, and a 14-year-old boy suffering a cut to the upper body when he tried to break up the fight.

The fight began when the victims confronted the suspects and were attacked by the two teenage boys. The 14-year-old boy had sought help from the victims after a verbal exchange with the two teenage boys at a nearby playground.

Both of the adult victims were transported to an area hospital following the fight. The juvenile was treated for his cuts at the scene.

The two teens fled the scene prior to arrival of police but were identified as the suspects and arrested a few hours later. They now face being charged as adults in the assault. Those charges are presently pending.
