An Annapolis woman died Thursday in a four-vehicle accident in Arnold, and Anne Arundel County Police say evidence suggests the driver may have suffered from a medical condition that caused her to lose control of her car. 

The driver who was killed has been identified by police as Patricia Ann Krzeminski, 77, of Annapolis.

The accident happened at 10:40 a.m. when Krzeminski’s Chrysler Sebring was eastbound on College Parkway approaching Shore Acres Drive when it drifted across the center line. Krzeminski’s car struck the side of a Geo Prism driven by Chelsea Anne Zeni, 21, of Annapolis.

The impact spun Zeni’s car, police said, which slid to a stop in the westbound lane of College Parkway. 

Although disabled, Krzeminski’s car continued east in the westbound lane, striking a taxi, a Honda Odyssey, driven by Zahid Ali Syed, 29, of North Annapolis. Officers said Syed attempted to swerve to avoid the collision with Krzeminski, but was unable to do so.

Krzeminski’s Sebring came to a stop across the westbound lane of College Parkway and was struck by a Ford Mustang driven by Christopher Gene Shelby, 42, of Arnold, who tried to avoid the crash.

Zeni suffered minor injuries and was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center, while Syed suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to Shock Trauma and admitted in critical condition.

There is no evidence to suggest drugs or alcohol contributed to the cause of the crash, authorities said. Excessive speed by any of the drivers is also not believed to be a factor in the accident.

Life did not begin by accident. Don't end it as one. I can't bear the feeling if someone take them away from me. As my own precaution, I have installed a security system on their phones that they can use when they have an emergency. This service will alert me if something's not good is happening to them when I'm not around. I have also added some of our friends as their safety network so they can also respond if my children is in distress. So anyone of us can come to their rescue. I don't take any chances when we speak about my kids welfare. I'm sharing Safekidzone to all the parents out there, this will help protect your children.
