Three people were hospitalized early Sunday morning after a single vehicle accident near Bel Air, Maryland State Police said.

Dylan Lewis, of Aberdeen, was driving a four-door Saab south on Route 1 when he lost control about half a mile north of the intersection with Old Joppa Road. The car struck a guardrail and then a utility pole at the intersection, Sgt. J. Griffin of the MSP's Bel Air barrack said.


Griffin said State Police are still investigating how Lewis lost control..

Lewis was taken by ambulance to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, and his two adult male passengers were flown by State Police Medevac to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, Griffin said.


The passengers, whose names were not available Sunday, were in critical but stable condition, Griffin said.

Griffin said Lewis was still at Upper Chesapeake as of 8 a.m., but a hospital spokesperson could not be immediately reached Sunday afternoon regarding his condition.

The Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company and Fallston Volunteer Fire & Ambulance company responded to the crash shortly after 2 a.m., according to Rich Gardiner, spokesperson for the Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association.

Two of the injured had to be extricated from the vehicle, Gardiner said.
