Two women hurt in crash on Route 100 Their disabled car was struck from behind


A 43-year-old woman and her mother-in-law were seriously injured yesterday when another car veered off the road and struck theirs while they were on the right shoulder of Route 100 because of car problems, state police said.

The woman, an Odenton resident, and her 64-year-old mother-in-law, who lives in Baltimore, were flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, said Tfc. Ken Forsythe. The 25-year-old Glen Burnie man who was driving the other car, a 1993 Geo Prizm, was taken to North Arundel Hospital, Forsythe said.

He would not release their names pending notification of relatives. He said their injuries were not life-threatening but that he did not have information about their conditions.

The women were in a 1997 Honda Accord on the right shoulder near Route 170 when their car was struck from behind at 2: 30 p.m., Forsythe said. A section of Route 100 was closed for about 30 minutes, he said.

Five arrested on drug charges

Three adults and two juveniles were arrested early Sunday on drug charges after detectives raided a Glen Burnie home and found heroin, other drugs, an electronic scale, two semiautomatic handguns and more than $3,000, police said.

Charles Ernest Maynard Jr., 40, who lives at the home in the 1500 block of Ingalls Road, was charged with possession and distribution of drugs, police said. Others arrested and charged with possession of drugs after the 3: 45 a.m. raid are Grace Kathryn Maynard, 39, also of the Ingalls Road address, Soo Jin Kim, 24, of the first block of Mary Lane in Glen Burnie, a 14-year-old Glen Burnie boy and a 17-year-old boy from Iowa.

Police said they got a tip Saturday that drugs were being sold from his home. During the Sunday search, police said, they found 10.5 grams of heroin.

Suspect sought in attempted rape

Police are looking for a man age 25 to 35 who offered a ride to a 17-year-old woman Saturday evening near the New Carrollton train station, then drove her to a secluded area in Laurel and tried to rape her.

The woman, who lives near the station in Lanham, struggled when the man attacked her and broke away with scratches on her body, police said.

The man was described as about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with dark brown hair and eyes, short hair and facial hair, police said. They said he was wearing a white T-shirt and black jeans, and was driving a two-door, white car that could have been a Mazda RX-7 or Nissan 300 that was dirty inside and out.

The victim was walking home from the train station just before 5: 20 p.m. when she accepted the ride, police said. The man took her to the 12000 block of Guilford Road and attacked her, police said.
