      Frederick wrong-way crash kills 1, sends 2 to hospital

      (WJLA) - Alcohol was likely a factor in a wrong-way crash that left one person dead and two others critically injured late Saturday, according to police.{ }

      It happened just before midnight on Interstate 70 near Route 180 in Frederick.

      Police say a GMC Terrain driving eastbound in the westbound lanes struck a Nissan Rogue head-on.

      Both drivers were transported to Baltimore Shock Trauma. Police say the Nissan's back seat passenger was not wearing a seat belt and died on scene.

      The victims have not been identified.
