Three people were taken to Baltimore trauma centers last weekend after being injured in two separate crashes.
The first was last Friday, when a car and delivery truck collided at the intersection of Juniata and Superior streets. The second was just about 24 hours later on Route 155 near Graceview Drive.
In the first, Chester James Dawson, 80, of the 400 block of South Tollgate Road in Bel Air, driving a Subaru Forrester, turned into a box delivery truck stopped and waiting to turn onto Superior Street to go to Route 155.
Dawson's car hit the delivery truck right in the middle and went underneath.
Dawson and the driver of the delivery truck, Brian Scott High, 30, who works for Dutch Valley Food Distribution Company on Lancaster Avenue in Myerstown, Pa., were taken by ambulances to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
Around 1 p.m. Saturday, Linette Edwards, 23, of the 100 block of Vancherie Court, was hurt in a crash on Route 155 near Graceview Drive.
Edwards was heading east on Route 155 when she hit the brakes. When she did, she hit a curb, drove across the grass, hit a small tree and overturned. Edwards was taken by ambulance to Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
