Baltimore County Police are continuing to investigate an early morning 5-car collision that killed a woman and injured her 3-year-old son.

The crash happened around 12:30 a.m. on Eastern Boulevard near White Marsh Boulevard when a Honda Element traveling westbound sideswiped another vehicle travelling in the same direction, then veered across the grass median, striking the Toyota Corolla that the woman and child were traveling eastbound in head-on. The Honda struck two additional vehicles before coming to a stop, causing minor injuries to those occupants.

The driver of the Toyota, identified as Alexis Lashey Steele (23) of the 3900 block of Cutty Sark Road, 21220, was transported to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where she later died. Her 3-year-old son, a passenger in the vehicle, was also transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Honda suffered life-threatening injuries and remains hospitalized. Officers from the Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team are working to determine the factors involved in the crash, including determining if any drug or alcohol intoxication is involved in this fatal crash.

Police are asking for help identifying these suspects responsible for at least three commercial burglaries in a single night.

Detectives have connected overnight burglaries at Dunkin Donuts on Honeygo Center Drive and Lucky Express on Philadelphia Road, both in the White Marsh Precinct, and Thai Rainbow on Concourse Circle in Essex Precinct. All three burglaries occurred during the overnight hours from Sunday, September 29 into Monday, September 30.

Surveillance images recovered by detectives have helped to determine that the suspects broke into Tai Rainbow around 12:32 a.m. and Dunkin Donuts around 3:20 a.m. In all three cases the suspects broke in and attacked the cash drawers, making away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
