Medical emergency may have led to fatal Chase crash

fatal-crashPolice in Baltimore County are investigating a fatal crash that occurred in the Chase area on Friday afternoon following calls to 9-1-1 for an erratic driver.

Authorities are attempting to determine whether the driver, 73-year-old Janet Anne Walper of the 1100-block of Chester Road, may have been suffering from a medical emergency prior to the crash.

The investigation is ongoing at this hour.
