Two people were injured, one critically, in a crash Friday on Route 100 in Hanover, police say.
Shortly before 5:30 p.m., a 2007 Honda Accord driven by Mary Catherine Kroder, 48, of Ellicott City, was stopped for traffic in a westbound lane of Route 100 near Arundel Mills Boulevard, police said.
A 2000 Volkswagen Passat driven by Ryan Abbott Scott Albright, 26, of Elkridge, was traveling in the same direction and failed to stop for traffic, striking the back of Kroder's Honda and pushing it into the left guardrail.
After the crash, Albright's car began to slide sideways and overturned several times before landing on its wheels on the right shoulder of the westbound lanes, police said.
Albright was unresponsive when paramedics arrived and was not wearing a seatbelt, police said. He was taken to Shock Trauma, where he was in critical condition Saturday, they said.
Kroder suffered minor injuries and was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center.
Police say their preliminary investigation suggests that excessive speed and alcohol may have been factors in the crash.
