An 85-year-old Brandywine woman was killed in an Oct. 25 car accident that occurred at 12:55 p.m. in Waldorf, Maryland. The crash took place at the intersection of Poplar Hill Road and St. Peter's Church Road, according to the Charles County Sheriff's Office. The Brandywine woman was driving a Honda CRV and traveling north on Poplar Road at the time of the accident.
As the Honda driver turned onto St. Peter's Church Road at the intersection, she reportedly failed to yield to an oncoming Toyota RAV4. The Toyota, driven by a 65-year-old woman from Waldorf, was traveling south when both vehicles collided at the intersection. Both women were taken to the University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center for what appeared to be minor injuries at the time. A 19-year-old man was a passenger in the Toyota but was not injured in the accident.
