SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County Public Schools official has identified a 17-year-old girl killed in a Monday afternoon car crash.

The victim was Navaeh Torrence, a 2018 graduate of James M. Bennett High School in Salisbury, according to Paul Butler, director of communication for Wicomico County Public Schools. 

Maryland State Police said the crash happened at around 1 p.m. Monday on Nanticoke Road near Centennial Drive in Salisbury.

According to police, Torrence was driving a Honda south on Nanticoke Road when her car crossed into the northbound lane and into the path of a dump truck. Both vehicles collided head-on, and police said the teen died at the scene.
