Two Shady Side neighbors were injured Tuesday afternoon in a single-car accident on Shady Side Road, county police said.
Heather Lynn Bowling, 17, and Danielle Hoff, 20, of separate addresses in the 4700 block of Washington Ave., were treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center for injuries. Bowling suffered facial and chest injuries and Hoff suffered injuries to her right arm, face and internal organs.
Police said Bowling was southbound on Shady Side Road about 2: 30 p.m. and tried to make a left turn onto Bay Breeze Road but then changed her mind.
As she tried to return to Shady Side Road, Bowling oversteered and lost control of the 1987 Dodge Omni. The car ran off the right side of the road and slammed into a utility pole, breaking it in half, police said.
Neither Bowling nor Hoff was wearing a seat belt. Police said speed and driver error were factors in the accident.
Brooklyn Park man faces drug and vehicle charges
Officers on a surveillance detail in Pumphrey arrested a man Monday on drug charges and seized his car and cash.
Marvin G. Mobley Jr., 18, of the 100 block of Zepplin Ave. in Brooklyn Park was charged with possession and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, driving without a valid license, driving without insurance and driving an unregistered vehicle.
Police said they were watching an unidentified house in Pumphrey about 9 p.m. because of suspected drug activity, when they saw a 1987 black Acura Legend pull up and the driver go into the house.
He left a few moments later and drove off. Officers noticed the car lacked a front tag and stopped it a short distance away on Zepplin Avenue.
They checked the man's driver's license and found it was not valid and arrested him. During a search, officers found 8.3 grams of what later tested positive for crack cocaine on the man. The drugs were packaged in small bags as if for distribution, police said.
