Multi-vehicle crash kills Silver Spring woman -- Gazette.Net


A Silver Spring woman died after a crash in Fairland on Wednesday that involved four vehicles, Montgomery County police said.

Marcelina Maria Cordoba, 22, of the 14100 block of Castle Boulevard died at a local hospital early Thursday, police said.

She was driving an Audi that overturned because of a chain-reaction crash on Columbia Pike, near Fairland Road.

Police described it in a news release as a hit-and-run collision that happened at about 1:15 p.m.

A preliminary investigation showed that a Jeep Commander driven by Phyllis Nicole Ford, 37, of Reisterstown Road in Baltimore was headed north on Columbia Pike.

While changing lanes, the Jeep hit the northbound Audi, causing it to crash into a Lincoln Navigator that also was going north on Columbia Pike, police said. Joselyn Nicole Gamble, 29, of the 3100 block of Quartet Lane in Silver Spring was driving the Lincoln.

After hitting the Lincoln, the Audi flipped over and struck a Toyota Scion tC sports coupe that was stopped at the intersection on westbound Fairland Road, police said.

The Toyota driver was Rhonda Munir Eltobgi, 20, of the 2800 block of Mozart Drive in Silver Spring.

Gamble was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening, police said. Ford and Eltobgi were not hurt.

Police said Ford initially drove away from the scene, but came back about two hours later and reported that she was involved, police said.

No charges had been filed as of Thursday afternoon. Police still were investigating.
