A 79-year-old woman died from the injuries she suffered in a single-vehicle crash that injured six others Saturday afternoon in Rockville.

Montgomery County police said Priscilla Ivy, of Durham, North Carolina, was riding in the front seat of a 2012 Toyota Highlander driven by Bartilyn Seneh, 30, of Frederick, on Montrose Parkway near East Jefferson Street around 1:45 p.m. when the vehicle left the roadway and struck a light pole. Ivy was transported to a local hospital where she later died.

Seneh and a 33-year-old passenger suffered serious injuries that were not life-threatening. The four other passengers were all children—two 3-year-old girls, a 10-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl, who all suffered minor injuries in the crash, according to police.

Police are continuing to investigate why the vehicle left the roadway and are asking anyone with information to call 240-773-6620.
