      Collen Nicole Bell killed in Germantown accident

      A 20-year-old Germantown woman was killed when her car collided with a taxi Saturday morning.

      Collen Nicole Bell was traveling northbound on Mateny Road when her 2006 Honda Civic and a Regency taxi cab, which was traveling eastbound on Clopper Road, collided at 2:31 a.m.

      Police say Bell's car spun 180 degrees, left the road and struck a tree.

      The driver of the taxi, 31-year-old Mabeen Bashrat, reported an injury but was not transported.

      Investigators say it has not been determined whether this was a t-bone collision. It is unknown whether speed, alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
