Westminster man in serious condition after Route 140 accident

A 26-year-old Westminster man was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center Monday night after an accident on Route 140 near the Baltimore County line between his motorcycle and a pickup truck, according to a Maryland State Police news release.

According to police, Joshua Paul Devine was flown to Shock Trauma in "serious condition with multiple injuries."

Troopers from the Westminster barrack responded to an accident near the Baltimore County line at 5:26 p.m., according to the release.

Upon their arrival, troopers found that a 2006 Honda motorcycle operated by Devine was involved in a two-vehicle accident with a 1991 Ford pickup, driven by 55-year-old Michael Henderson Brown of Westminster, police said.

Police said both vehicles were traveling south on Route 140 when Devine lost control of his motorcycle traveling into the lane of the pickup, where he was hit by the truck and thrown from his motorcycle.

Troopers provided first aid with the assistance of multiple bystanders until paramedics from Reese, Gamber, and Reisterstown fire departments arrived, according to the release.

The roadway was closed for about two hours for the investigation, police said.

Brown and a passenger were taken to Carroll Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Police said alcohol is not a factor in the collision.

Any witnesses are advised to contact the Maryland State Police Westminster Barrack at 410-386-3000.
