The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to investigate a fatal pedestrian crash on Eastern Avenue yesterday afternoon.

Police were called to the area of Eastern Avenue and Tidewater Lane around 1:11 p.m. Sunday when a 2017 Ram 1500 truck traveling westbound on Eastern Avenue struck a pedestrian that suddenly darted out into the roadway. The truck attempted to swerve to avoid the pedestrian but the woman collided with the passenger side of the truck. She was transported to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center where she later died.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the woman attempted to run across Eastern Avenue to catch a MTA bus that was stopped and loading passengers on the north shoulder of Eastern Avenue. She is identified as 19-year old Trinea Anerra Covington of the unit block of Ambo Circle, 21220.

Baltimore County Police investigated a fatal crash in Chase yesterday afternoon following calls to 9-1-1 for an erratic driver.

Police are investigating the possibility that the driver, 73-year-old Janet Anne Walper of the 1100 block of Chester Road, may have been suffering from a medical emergency prior to the crash. Officers from the Essex Precinct were dispatched to a call for an erratic driver in a silver Subaru Forester around 3:23 p.m. on Eastern Avenue before the vehicle struck two mailboxes and then a BGE pole west of Oliver Beach Road, causing the Subaru to roll over and eject the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt. 

Police and medics responded to the crash but the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team are continuing their investigation into the cause of this fatal crash.
