A North Carroll High School senior was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after he was extricated from his auto after a two-car crash on Hampstead-Mexico Road (Route 482) yesterday afternoon.
James R. Hudgins Jr., 17, of the 2600 block of Bert Fowler Road in Manchester was driving a Jeep west on Route 482 at 2:50 p.m. when another 17-year-old, driving a Honda CRX, pulled out of Brodbeck Road. The Honda collided with the rear of the Jeep, causing the Hudgins youth to lose control of the vehicle, which swerved across the center line, down an embankment and overturned.
The Jeep came to rest on its wheels, but the top was crushed. Rescue teams from Hampstead cut the top off the vehicle to free the Hudgins youth.
State police did not release the name of the other driver because of his age and because his parents had not been notified.
Police said the Honda was northbound on Brodbeck Road and stopped at the stop sign before starting to cross Hampstead-Mexico Road. The driver of the Honda was not injured.
Lineboro: Lineboro firefighters investigated a fire alarm in the 5000 block of Grave Run Road at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Middletown: Lineboro firefighters responded to a barn fire in the 19000 block of Bollinger Road in Baltimore County at 3:54 p.m. Tuesday.
