DeAngelo, who is from Darlington and was living in Dundalk, was pronounced dead at the scene, Green confirmed. 

The driver of the Hyundai Santa Fe, 29-year-old Kimberly Taylor, a White Marsh resident, was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious injuriesTaylor's daughter, 3-year-old Lily Kelley, was rushed to Johns Hopkins, where she died. Taylor's other daughter, 2-month-old Mackenzie Kelley, was also taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she is in stable condition, according to Green. 

Maryland Transportation Authority Police continue to investigate. "It appears that Victoria DeAngelo entered the outer loop of the beltway using the wrong ramp and going the wrong direction," Green said.

I have some thoughts, but the priority goes to the families and friends of the victims.

After watching the news I think I know how this happened... Off Fort Smallwood she made a right onto Quarantine road to get onto 695 (where they are doing bridge construction). Once onto Quarantine road, instead of going OVER 695 and making a left, she turned *LEFT* AT THE STOP SIGN thus getting onto 695 going the wrong way. I was wondering how she ended up going the wrong way and that would explain it.
