A driver fleeing a routine traffic stop struck and killed a woman after running a red light late Wednesday night, Montgomery County police said.
Lt. Paul Starks said that shortly before midnight, an officer noticed a Hyundai driving on North Frederick Road with its lights off. The officer pulled the car over after the driver turned on to eastbound Odenhal Avenue, but the driver sped away as the officer prepared to approach the car.
Two blocks away, the Hyundai slammed into a car being driven by a woman as it passed through the intersection with Goshen Road. Beatrice Omoro, 32, of the 18300 block of Lost Knife Circle in Gaithersburg, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Woman sent to jail for animal violation
A Frederick woman was ordered to serve 10 days in jail for violating her probation in an animal-cruelty case.
Linda Young, 51, was found guilty of the probation violation in January and was sentenced Wednesday.
After Miss Young pleaded guilty in September to 24 animal-neglect charges, authorities learned that two dogs and seven cats remained at her home. She had been ordered not to possess any animals for two years.
The original charges were pressed after the seizure of 45 cats from Miss Young’s home in March. Two dozen cats had to be euthanized.
Motorcycle week changing venues
The next Delmarva Bike Week will have a different look and should be quieter for residents of Berlin.
The four-day September motorcycle celebration is moving from Ocean Downs racetrack, where it has been held for five years. Events will be held at four venues, including the Harley-Davidson dealerships in Ocean City and Seaford, Del.
