Man injured in collision with farm machinery
A Westminster motorist whose van collided late Tuesday with a piece of farm machinery on a South Carroll road remained in serious condition yesterday, a spokeswoman at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore said.
Brian J. Zorbach, 25, of the 2800 block of Sykesville Road was pinned in the van for more than a hour before rescue workers extricated him. An emergency trauma team from Baltimore was flown in to treat his injuries.
According to state police, Zorbach was traveling north on Klee Mill Road at Bartholow Road when his van crested a hill and met an approaching John Deere tractor operated by Dwight B. Scott, 41, of the 1000 block of Humbert Schoolhouse Road in Westminster.
The tractor was towing a grain drill, which protruded across the center line, state police said.
Scott and a passenger in the van were not seriously injured, police said.
Sykesville: Firefighters from Sykesville, Gamber, Winfield and West Friendship in Howard County responded at 4: 37 p.m. Tuesday to an apartment fire in the 7400 block of Village Road. Units were out more than 40 minutes.
