Reisterstown Woman, 21, Killed in Crash Thursday

Kara Marian Cook, 21, of Reisterstown, was pronounced dead Thursday night after her car rear-ended another vehicle in the Worthington Valley.

A 21-year-old Reisterstown woman was pronounced dead Thursday night after her car rear-ended another vehicle at the intersection of Greenspring Avenue and Garrison Forest Road in the Worthington Valley.

Kara Marian Cook, of the unit block of Trighton Court in Reisterstown, was traveling northbound on Greenspring Avenue in her 2000 BMW Z3 when she rear-ended a 2006 Mercedes R350 that was turning left onto Garrison Forest Road from the northbound lane on Greenspring Avenue, Louise Rogers-Feher, a county police spokeswoman, said.

“Ms. Cook then separates from the Mercedes and collided with a guardrail along the east edge of Greenspring Avenue,” Rogers-Feher said.

The call to police came in at 5:31 p.m. Cook was taken to Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 7:28 p.m.

The other driver, Lina Maria Lewis, of the unit block of Deercroft Court in Reisterstown, and a passenger, were taken to GBMC with non-life threatening injuries, Rogers-Feher said.

My husband works with Kara's boyfriend. As a mother myself, I am utterly disgusted at Adam T's comment. What a heartless person. My condolences to you, Mr. & Mrs. Cook.

Mr. & Mrs. Cook; My daughter was a year or so ahead of Kara at Franklin and remembers her as a sweet and popular girl. I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I can't begin to imagine the depths of your pain. There are always jackasses with opinions who type before they think: Please don't let thoughtless comments cause you any more distress.You and Kara are in my prayers.

Mr. and Mrs. Cook: Even though I never met you, I know how good of parents you are just by knowing Kara. No, Kara and I weren't close, but she did teach me the basics of horseback riding. She also taught me to never give up on my dreams. I miss Kara, and want you guys to know she is in my prayers. Love always, a friend of Kara's

i was there when the accident occured, due to the fact that she was just leaving the farm. Adam, it wasn't a mistake. I believe God was with her every second that horrible day.
