Hagerstown man critically hurt in car-truck crash


A 48-year-old Hagerstown man, who was pinned in his car for more than a half-hour yesterday after it was struck head-on by a loaded dump truck, was in critical condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Harold Bible of Hagerstown was flown to the hospital by state police helicopter after the crash, which occurred at 8:15 a.m. on Route 140 just west of the Monocacy River in Frederick County. His son is Westminster city Officer Michael Bible.

Tfc. Dennis Delp, of the Frederick barracks, said Martin Mayne, 28, of Libertytown was driving a dump truck west on Route 140 and failed to negotiate a curve after crossing the river. The truck crossed the center line and crashed into the 1984 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Mr. Bible, Trooper Delp said.

Mr. Mayne was treated and released at Frederick Memorial Hospital, Trooper Delp said.
