Two die in Wednesday Howard crash

By David P. Marino-Nachison

A four-vehicle collision in Columbia killed two people Wednesday, the Howard County Police Department announced.

Shortly before 8 a.m., a Saturn Ion heading west on Md. 175 crossed the median near Tamar Drive and hit a Dodge Grand Caravan heading east head-on, according to police.

The Caravan was then hit by a Hyundai Santa Fe headed in the other direction, and another car was damaged by debris.

The driver of the Caravan, Urooj Zehra Isfahani, 35, of Columbia, and the front-seat passenger in the Saturn, Matthew James Miranda, 22, of Columbia, were both pronounced dead after being taken to Howard County General Hospital, police said.

Miranda was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

The drivers of the Saturn and the other car, a Toyota Corolla, were not injured.

Speed may have been a factor in the accident, police said.
