A multi-vehicle crash on Md. 140 near Reisterstown early Friday wiped out the large Full Moon Pub & Grill sign, and slowed traffic in both directions.
Teresa Sanner, a Full Moon employee who witnessed the crash, said a FedEx truck traveling on Md. 140 appeared to have lost control and crashed into a car that was turning into the Full Moon parking lot, and careened into the restaurant’s tall sign — a landmark of the transition from Baltimore County to Carroll County.
Louise Rogers-Feher, a spokeswoman with Baltimore County police, said the department received a call for the crash around 10:15 a.m. There were three vehicles involved — a red Chevrolet Camaro, a FedEx truck and a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. truck, she said.
“It doesn’t look like there were any injuries,” she said.
Two utility trucks attempted to stop abruptly, Sanner said. Both trucks spun around 360 degrees on the damp pavement, but one truck did not collide with anything. The other truck’s trailer jack-knifed in the middle of Md. 140, Sanner said.
The Camaro that the FedEx truck first hit was demolished, as the front-end of the car was “wiped out,” Sanner said.
Apart from the massive sign, which has “been here as long as Full Moon has,” the curb separating the pub from the highway was severely compromised and power lines were downed in the parking lot, Sanner said.
