Eldersburg crash involves five Liberty High students

Five Liberty High School students were involved in a two-vehicle crash early Tuesday morning in Eldersburg.

According to Maryland State Police, a vehicle carrying two female Liberty students was headed north waiting to turn left off of Md. 32 into Chick-fil-A when another vehicle left a space for the females' vehicle to turn through. As the females' vehicle was turning left, it collided with a vehicle traveling south in the right turn lane. That vehicle, Trooper Michael Karas said, was carrying three male Liberty students.

The angled head-on collision sent the driver of the vehicle traveling south to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was later released, Karas said. None of the other students involved in the crash were sent to a hospital.

The incident shut down the road for more than a half hour and knocked power out at Liberty High School and other nearby businesses after one of the vehicles hit a pole, he said.

The driver of the turning vehicle was issued a citation for failing to yield, Karas said.
