Murphy was killed; a 14-month-old infant in her auto was among the two hurt.

Westbound lanes of Route 50 were being shut down for a time so that a state police helicopter could land on the highway.

"There was just a auto coming head-on down all three lanes eastbound, and it was going westbound in our lanes of traffic, and it was totally out of control", said a female caller. The auto crashed across a grassy median, entered the westbound lanes and then rolled over into an infield near one of the highway's off ramps. MDOT State Highway Administration personnel assisted on the scene with lane closures and detours.

She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police also aren't sure how long Murphy was on the wrong side of the road, 911 calls indicate she traveled around two miles before crashing just east of the Severn River Bridge.

The other passenger in Murphy's vehicle was a 14-month old infant. The infant was flown to a hospital, where he is undergoing treatment, state police said.

The other specific target named is the exciting Kylian Mbappé of Monaco, perhaps the most in-demand player in European football. As expected, City dominated the opening stages but it was not until the 27th minute that Jesus tapped home de Bruyne's cross.

The driver of the vehicle that was struck head-on has not yet been identified pending next of kin notification.

Skidmore was driving a silver 2016 Mercedes SUV eastbound on US 50 when he was hit head-on by a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the SUV was trapped for more than an hour before being rescued.

Those unfamiliar with the stop or become distracted could continue down the road and back onto Route 50 westbound into eastbound traffic.

The MSP Crash Team is conducting a detailed crash reconstruction according to police, and the investigation is ongoing. Motorists are urged to visit 511md.org or call 511 for updated traffic advisories.
