Troopers said 75-year-old Margaret Plunkett of Hackensack was driving a Toyota Camry west on Mulberrie Point Road at about 2 p.m. Thursday. Troopers said her Saab 93 entered the northbound lanes of Bay Road when the vehicle was hit by a car driven by 18-year-old Meaghan D. Fitts of Wilmington, Del.

Police said Fitts' car hit Plunkett's on the driver's side.
