A Carroll County man was killed after a four-vehicle collision that occurred as snow fell yesterday morning just outside Westminster, according to state police from the Westminster barracks.
Police said Henry S. Holt, 45, of the 1700 block of Bollinger Road in Westminster, died when he was thrown from the passenger seat of a Chevrolet Silverado and then run over as the truck rolled down a hill. The truck was driven by his father, Henry H. Holt, of the same address in Westminster, authorities said.
The crash occurred when the westbound Chevrolet crossed the centerline and struck a Ford F-250 truck on Old Westminster Pike at Spangler Drive about 7:45 a.m., police said.
A Westminster woman traveling eastbound on Old Westminster Pike in a Ford Focus behind the Ford truck ran off the road, striking an unoccupied sport utility vehicle, police said.
Henry H. Holt, 72, remains in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
The driver of the Ford truck, Timmy L. Milstreed, also of Westminster, was treated at Carroll Hospital Center. The driver of the Ford Focus, Kristen Sullivan, was not injured, police said.
Police diverted traffic to Route 140 for several hours until Old Westminster Pike, which had been closed in both directions, was reopened about 11 a.m.
