Woman, 91, dies in Anne Arundel crash

Washington Post Editors

A 91-year-old woman was killed Monday night when the car she was riding in turned into the path of an oncoming pickup truck in the Davidsonville area of Anne Arundel County, police said.

Dorothy A. Boyd, of Vantage Point Road in Columbia, was a front-seat passenger in a 1991 Buick Riviera driven by her 94-year-old husband, Frank E. Boyd, police said.

The car, traveling north on Davidsonville Road about 10:30 p.m., was turning left onto Farrell Street when the 2003 Dodge Ram pickup, headed south on Davidsonville Road, slammed into the Buick's passenger side, police said.      

Dorothy Boyd was pronounced dead at Baltimore Washington Medical Center. Her husband was in stable condition at Prince George's Hospital Center.      

The driver of the pickup, James W. Holden, 34, of Harcourt Avenue in Crofton, was not injured, police said.

They said the crash is still under investigation but that neither speed nor alcohol are believed to have been factors.

Sad. A 94-year-old driving at night is enough of a factor. Why can't states implement some sort of re-testing for license renewal? (You'd have to prove you have sufficient reflexes and night-vision to properly function.) Oh yeah, the powerful retired persons voting bloc wouldn't stand for it.

94 in the headline, 91 in the article. Quality control at Post has gotten pathetic.

You're too right, ceebee2. I've stopped bothering to comment on that. It's just to common at WaPo Online.

The husband was 94, the wife was 91.
