  • Route 50 is closed as police investigate the fatal accident

A second person has died after a head-on collision on U.S. Route 50 just in Annapolis, Md., that involved a young mother driving on the wrong side of the road with her 14-month-old son in the vehicle, authorities said Thursday.

Crash on U.S. Route 50 in Annapolis, Md., on Wednesday left two people dead.

She later crashed into a SUV driven by Robert Skidmore, 66, of Cape St. Claire, who died at the hospital from his injuries after responders took more than two hours to free him from the wreckage.

The woman has been identified as Laura Ashley Murphy, 22, of Salisbury.

Police say the woman who was killed in the crash was driving in the opposite direction on the eastbound lanes of Route 50 when she struck another vehicle.

Police say investigators don't know where Murphy entered the highway or why she was going the wrong way. He was extricated at approximately 4 p.m. and transported via medevac to R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, where he was later pronounced dead by emergency services personnel. "Now, they were reporting a crash", said Maryland State Police spokesperson Elena Russo.

Police say her auto was traveling in the wrong direction and crashed head-on with the unidentified man's vehicle.

"I'm on Route 50 east at Exit 29A".

A third vehicle, occupied by Anthony Stanley, 59, was also involved in the accident. For unknown reasons at this time, Murphy was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes of Route 50 in Annapolis.

The crash is under investigation.

Those unfamiliar with the stop or become distracted could continue down the road and back onto Route 50 westbound into eastbound traffic. It is unknown where Murphy initially entered onto US 50 at this time.
