A woman is dead after a crash on Interstate 95 in Howard County, Maryland, which caused major traffic delays Wednesday night.
The initial crash happened at 6:30 p.m. on I-95 near the Howard County rest area in Laurel.
According to Maryland State Police, the driver of a blue Honda, Candy Noonan, 73, of Germantown, clipped the front of a tractor-trailer while trying to change lanes.
As Noonan got out of her car to speak with the trucker, she failed to put her car in park and it began to roll.
When Noonan went after the car, she walked in the tractor-trailer driver’s blind spot. He was trying to move his vehicle out of traffic and struck the woman shortly after 7 p.m.
Noonan died at the scene. No other injuries were reported.
Maryland State Police said a medical examiner was at the scene.
