Maryland State Police aviation flew two adult females to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after a Monday morning crash on New Windsor Road, according to a Westminster volunteer fire company official.
The collision, reported at 11:48 a.m., occurred at New Windsor Road and Old New Windsor Pike and left three injured, said Josh Evans, a public information officer for the fire company.
The injuries to the two females flown to Shock Trauma are “severe” but are “more than likely non-life-threatening,” Evans said. Another person was also transported to Carroll Hospital by ambulance with “minor, non-life-threatening” injuries, he added.
The transports occurred after a head-on collision between a car and an SUV, Evans said. The roadway was closed for several hours to clean up the wreckage, he said.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and several fire companies — from Westminster, New Windsor, Pleasant Valley, Union Bridge and Manchester — responded, in addition to MSP aviation, Evans said.
There was a second collision involving two vehicles at Stone Chapel and New Windsor roads about 30 minutes later at 12:18 p.m., said Cpl. Jon Light from the Sheriff’s Office. In that incident, at least one person was transported by ambulance to Carroll Hospital, Light said.
