The authorities say 22 year-old Laura Murphy died at the scene after her Volkswagen hit another vehicle head-on.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that authorities say they had received reports of her going the wrong way but were unable to reach her.

Meanwhile, the paper says that a 14-month old boy was airlifted to Johns Hopkins Hospital but his condition is not immediately known.
