CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities have identified the person killed when a car collided with a fuel truck Thursday afternoon on Route 50 in Cambridge.

Maryland State Police have identified the victim as 64-year-old Geraldine Jones Wanex of East New Market.

Troopers said a Pep-Up fuel tanker was crossing Route 50 at Aireys Road shortly before 3 p.m.  The truck had not cleared both eastbound lanes while waiting to turn into westbound traffic, when Wanex's car struck the rear-end of the fuel tanker.  

Police say the collision caused both vehicles to spin into the median.

Police said Wanex was trapped inside of the car.  She was later pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, the passenger in the car, 20-year-old Kymberleigh Albites of Cambridge, was transported by ambulance to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury with minor injuries.

Investigators said the driver of the truck, 40-year-old Santo Jones of Cambridge, refused medical attention at the scene.

The eastbound lanes of Route 50 at Aireys Road and one westbound lane were closed Thursday afternoon for five hours while police investigated and cleared the scene.

Troopers continue to investigate the crash and say charges are pending.
