Crash in Fallston area sends five to hospital

Five people were injured, though none seriously, in a crash at the intersection of Reckord Road and Route 1 in Fallston Tuesday afternoon.

The accident involved three vehicles and was reported shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to Sgt. Chatfield of the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack.

Five people were taken by ambulance to area hospitals, Chatfield said.

Darrell Waddell, 68, of Baltimore, driving a 2001 Buick, was trying to cross Route 1 at Reckord, where he had a flashing red light and stop sign, and failed to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic, Chatfield said.

Waddell's car was hit by two cars heading north on Route 1, first by a 2001 Nissan Altima, driven by a 17-year-old girl, which went into a culvert, then by a 2011 Toyota Camry, driving by Richard Sherrock, 25, of Schwenksville, Pa., according to Chatfield.

Waddell and his passenger, 70-year-old Patricia Waddell, were taken to Franklin Square Hospital.

The driver of the Altima and her two passengers, a 17-year-old girl from Bel Air and Christopher Reimann, 23, of Joppa, were taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air.

Sherrock was not injured.

Charges are pending against Darrell Waddell, Chatfield said.
