    Maryland Transportation Authority Police do not yet know what caused a Dundalk woman to be driving the wrong way on I-695 prior to being involved in a fatal crash on Sunday.
    “We do not know, not at this point,” MdTA police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Green said on Tuesday. “Other than the fact it appears she made a wrong turn to get on the Beltway in the wrong direction.”
    Victoria DeAngelo, 21, of Dundalk was pronounced dead at the scene. Green did not disclose her address, but state records indicate she may have lived on Searles Road.

    DeAngelo apparently entered the outer loop of the Beltway by an exit ramp and was thus traveling in the wrong direction.
    Her Chevrolet Cobalt struck a Hyundai Sonata in a head-on collision near the Curtis Creek drawbridge at 10 p.m.
    One of the three occupants of the other vehicle, a three-year-old girl, died after being taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital.
    The victim’s mother, a 29-year-old White Marsh resident, was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious injuries, Green said.
    Her two-month-old daughter is reportedly in stable condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
    The accident closed the Beltway until 2:48 a.m.
