BALTIMORE - Maryland Transportation Authority Police say an autopsy on a woman killed along with a 3-year-old in a wrong-way crash found a painkiller and alcohol in her blood.

A 3- year-old in the SUV, Lily Kelley, died. Kelley's mother, Kimberly Taylor, who was driving the SUV, and her 2-month-old sister were hospitalized.
