What we know so far is Lisa Adrienna Lea, 54, hit another vehicle while trying to change lanes.

This caused Lea to lose control and crash into a construction zone, killing the workers.

Lea remains hospitalized at Shock Trauma and is listed in fair condition. Police have not confirmed whether speed was a factor.

The Baltimore County State's Attorney is reviewing the case to determine if criminal charges should be filed.

Governor Wes Moore ordered flags to be flown at half-staff Friday in memory of the workers who died.
