Loyola College Associate Professor of Pastoral Counseling and Director of Ph.d. Clinical Education Kelly Murray, 40, died on Saturday when a three foot in diameter tree branch landed on the Toyota minivan she and seven others were riding in.

An unidentified 7-year-old girl also died in the accident.

Six other passengers, ranging in age from 10 months to 11 years old, were pulled from the vehicle and taken to area hospitals with non life-threatening injuries.

The three-foot diameter branch snapped during a storm as the van was stopped at a traffic light on Connecticut Avenue at East West Highway in Chevy Chase.

Mikulski to attend Wallops launch facility groundbreaking


Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski will be at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility for groundbreaking Monday on a launch facility that will test a new rocket designed to service the International Space Station once the shuttle retires.

The senator says construction will create 250 jobs and the launch site will eventually bring 400 high-tech jobs to the Eastern Shore by 2010.

The lower Eastern Shore site has been chosen by Orbital Sciences Corporation as the base of operations for development, assembly, and testing of the Taurus II rocket.

Mikulski is chairwoman of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee that funds NASA.
