Police: Woman driving wrong way on 695 was under the influence

A toxicology report has come back on the driver police say drove the wrong way on 695 – an incident that resulted in the 21-year-old woman's death and the death of a 3-year-old riding in the SUV the woman's car hit head-on.

Maryland Transportation Authority Police say tramadol (a painkiller) and alcohol were found in the blood of Victoria DeAngelo. Her blood alcohol level was reportedly more than twice the legal limit -- .18 to be exact.

The crash shut down eastbound 695 (outer loop), and drivers were told to use either 95 or 895 instead to go over the Patapsco River.

DeAngelo was pronounced dead at the scene, and the 3-year-old died after being transported to the hospital.
