Two infants -- 4 months old and 7 months old -- were among five people injured in a two-vehicle crash near Mount Airy yesterday.
Maryland State Police said 4-month-old Ashley Tracy was flown to the Johns Hopkins Hospital Children's Center in Baltimore in a MedEvac helicopter. Her condition was listed as good by a hospital spokeswoman yesterday afternoon.
She was in a safety seat in the back of a car driven by her mother, Lora Lee Tracy, police said. Mrs. Tracy, 25, of the 2400 block of Flagmarsh Road in Mount Airy, was released from Frederick Memorial Hospital after treatment.
Linda Gail Carey, 23, of Germantown, the driver of the other vehicle, was also released from Frederick Memorial after treatment. Police said two passengers, Gregory Carey, 5, and Lora Carey, 7 months, were also treated and released.
According to state police investigators, a Dodge Caravan driven by Ms. Carey was going north on Route 27 when it collided at Watersville Road with a Chevrolet Cavalier being driven by Mrs. Tracy.
The van ran across the highway, down an embankment and up a hill, police said. It drifted back down the hill before coming to rest.
Cpl. Palmer B. Grotte, the investigating officer, said Mrs. Tracy was going west on Watersville Road and had stopped for the stop sign at Route 27. She pulled out onto the highway while her view was obscured by a van turning right on Watersville Road, he said. The crash occurred about noon.
Charges are pending, according to police.
