BOYDS, Md. (WUSA9) -- A woman is dead and five others are injured after a head-on crash in Boyds, Md. Tuesday evening, a spokesperson for Montgomery County fire said.
According to Montgomery County Police, a silver, 2003 Chevy S10 Trailblazer with three occupants was traveling inbound on Darnestown Rd around 7:00 p.m. At the same time, a silver, 2008 Honda Accord was driving outbound on Darnestown Road.
