Investigators found the man was driving a 2000 Ford pickup truck north on Rockland Road before he struck a guardrail north of where the road intersects with Wampler Lane, coming to a rest in a wooded area, Light said.

The man was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma center in Baltimore from Westminster Elementary School, Light said, about a mile southeast of the crash. The man’s medical condition wasn’t immediately clear Friday morning.
