Three people injured in two-car collision


An afternoon accident at Gorsuch and Leisters Church roads injured three people Friday, sending one of them to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Jean L. McAvoy, 60, of Baldwin Park Drive in Westminster, was driving a silver Pontiac Grand Am east on Leisters Church Road shortly before 4 p.m. when she failed to obey a stop sign, state police Tfc. Gary Lang said.

As she drove through the intersection, the Grand Am collided with a Chevrolet Blazer that was headed north, Trooper Lang said. The driver of that vehicle, Timothy R. Hare, 33, of Hattie Drive in Hampstead, was treated and released from Carroll County General Hospital.

Ten-year-old Tommy McAvoy of Bluff City, Tenn., a passenger in the Grand Am, also was treated at CCGH and released.

Ms. McAvoy was discharged from Shock Trauma yesterday.

Trooper Lang said that upon impact, the Chevrolet Blazer was knocked eastward into a cornfield.

Both cars were destroyed, police said.

No charges have been filed, Trooper Lang said.
