Churchton woman hurt seriously in collision


A Churchton woman was seriously injured Tuesday after her car crossed the center line and smashed into an oncoming car on Muddy Creek Road, county police said yesterday.

Patricia Ann Crandell, 37, of the 4800 block of Muddy Creek Road was listed in serious condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was taken after the accident.

Samuel Edward Snowden IV, 39, of the 5900 block of Tyler Road in Deale was treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center and released.

Police said Crandell's 1994 Ford Escort was heading north shortly before 7 p.m. when her car crossed the center line just south of Galesville Road.

The Escort struck Snowden's 1993 Chevrolet station wagon almost head-on, then spun clockwise onto the right shoulder, police said.
