WESTMINSTER, MD (WJZ)-- Maryland State Police in Westminster are investigating a multiple vehicle accident overnight that resulted in the death of three people.

Troopers responded to the area of westbound Maryland Route 140 just west of Hughes Shop Road around 10:25p.m. where they found a serious head on collision.

The preliminary investigation by the Maryland State Police Crash Team reveals a 2017 Black Chevy Camaro was traveling eastbound on Route 140 west when it began to pass another vehicle.

While attempting to pass the vehicle the Camaro struck a Toyota Corolla traveling westbound on Route 140.

The driver of the Camaro and a passenger were killed along with the driver of the Corolla.

The driver of the Camaro has been identified as 53-year-old Todd Baker, the passenger has not yet been identified.

The driver of the Corolla has been identified as 20-year-old Anna Marie Lienhard of Westminster.

A third vehicle was also involved in the accident but neither occupants of that vehicle required transportation from the scene for medical treatment.

Maryland Route 140 was closed for 4 hours as a result of the fatal accident.

The investigation is still ongoing but at this time speed is considered a factor and it is believed the Camaro was traveling in excess of 100 mph at the time of the accident.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Maryland State Police Westminster Barrack at 410-386-3000.
