November 12, 1991

Two people, one of them an 11-year-old girl, were killed in separate head-on crashes within a half-hour Sunday night on rain-slicked Harford County roads.

State police said Alan B. Caudill, 34, of Bel Air, was driving south on Conowingo Road in the Hickory area north of Bel Air about 6 p.m. when he crossed the center line, sideswiped a car driven by Charles L. Brockmeyer Jr., 42, of Forest Hill and then smashed head-on into a car driven by John P. Ashbridge, 44, of Darlington.

Mr. Ashbridge was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was listed in critical condition last night. The only passenger in his car was his 11-year-old daughter, Elizabeth Ashbridge, who was taken by ambulance to Fallston General Hospital, where she died a short time later.

Mr. Caudill was taken to Fallston General Hospital. He was listed in satisfactory condition yesterday. State police said charges were pending.

In the second Harford County accident, they said, Douglas E. Ferguson, 49, of Joppa, died on Mountain Road near Greenspring Avenue when his car crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a car driven by Debra J. Kurth-Antley, 36, of Whiteford, who was listed in critical condition yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Jeffrey Kurth, 9, a passenger in her car, was treated at Fallston General Hospital and released.
