A 17-year-old Ogletown teen was killed when the SUV she was driving struck a tree and burst into flames.
The 2004 Jeep Liberty was being driven by the girl on Old Cooch’s Bridge Road east of Iron Hill. High speeds, as it went around a curve, was probably a factor. The posted speed limit for the curve is 15 mph. She was wearing her seat belt and paramedics had to pull her from the burning wreckage. The unidentified teen was pronounced dead at the scene.
