Westminster woman injured in Stone Chapel Road crash


A Westminster woman was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after a head-on collision between a car and a dump truck on Stone Chapel Road about 9:30 a.m. yesterday.

It was the third accident in the area in as many days between a dump truck and a passenger car.

Linda Carol Miller, 44, of the 4100 block of Eyre Court, was in serious condition yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

State police said her 1981 Chevrolet Chevette was westbound on Stone Chapel Road, when it crossed the center line and crashed into the

front of a 1990 International dump truck driven by William Asper Zile, 37, of Upperco. Mr. Zile was not injured.

Police said wet road conditions may have contributed to the crash.

No charges were made, and the investigation is continuing, state police said.

On Monday, two men were injured when the car they were riding in, headed south on Route 97, failed to heed a stop sign at Old Liberty Road and crashed into the rear of a stopped dump truck on a construction site.

Both men were taken to the Shock Trauma Center for treatment.

Richard Collins, 54, of Bluefield, Va., remained in serious condition and his companion, Lawrence Skoczynski, 31, of Baltimore, was in fair condition yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Charges are pending in that accident.

On Tuesday morning, a dump truck driven west on Route 140 at the Monocacy River by Martin Mayne, 28, of Libertytown, crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a car driver by Harold Bible, 48, of Hagerstown.

Mr. Bible, the father of Officer Michael Bible of the Westminster Police Department, remained in critical condition yesterday at the Shock Trauma Center.
