Iva Hermus, 69, of Staten Island, New York, allegedly pulled into the shoulder of the roadway as she headed west on Route 340.

Police said they wanted another person in the car to drive because high winds and snow made driving difficult.

After she got out of her car, police said the driver of a black Honda Accord lost control and crashed into Hermus’ car, which hit her. The woman was airlifted to a hospital in Baltimore where she later died.

The Honda Accord driver and a passenger also suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Police did not say whether charges would be brought.
