Woman drove the wrong way five miles on Route 50 before fatal crash
A Greenbelt police officer came forward over the weekend to say he saw the driver who caused a fatal head-on collision last week enter Route 50 in the wrong direction more than five miles away.
Officer Michael Apgar of Cape St. Claire told The Capital Saturday that he saw the driver enter westbound Route 50 at Route 2 south exit ramp in Annapolis. He was the first person to call in the wrong-way driver to police, records of 911 calls released Monday by Anne Arundel County police show.
The driver, identified by police as Christine Parks, 31, of Severn, drove east for several minutes before she collided with a car driven by Hui Xu, 34, of Herndon, Virginia. Police said the crash, which injured two others as well, happened near Bay Dale Drive on across the Severn River Bridge.
