Brittany T. Redden Death – Brittany T. Redden, 33, was identified as the woman who was murdered on Monday when she was involved in an accident with a truck near the intersection of Baltimore Pike and Woodland Avenue, according to the police. On Friday afternoon, Redden was riding a motorized bicycle eastbound on Baltimore Pike when she collided with a truck that was turning onto Woodland Avenue.
Chief of Police Reported
According to the Chief of Police, Joe Daly, the collision occurred as the truck was making the turn. “It’s just a shame,” Daly said. “He made a legal right-hand turn and she actually hit the vehicle towards the rear. I just don’t think she saw it turning. There was no reason for her not to stop.” According to Daly, Redden was moving up the sidewalk, and judging by the speed at which she was going, it seemed as though the motor was operating. Redden was wearing earphones and had the hood of her sweatshirt up, he said.
According to Daly, the truck driver stayed at the site and was cooperative with the authorities. Daly stated that the individual did not give off the impression of being impaired and volunteered to have a blood draw performed. Daly further mentioned that the decision that the truck driver was not at fault was reached after the police interviewed two witnesses and reviewed the video surveillance from the intersection.
