A Glen Rock, Pa., woman who was hurt in an accident on Route 31 in August has died of her injuries.

Ollie McCann, 56, died at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore on Oct. 12. The information on her death became available yesterday through state police at the Westminster barracks.

Rachel Allyn Muenzenmayer, 23, of Annandale, Va., was also killed in the three-car crash Aug. 31 that closed the highway for about two hours while rescue workers cut through the roof of one of the cars to remove the injured.

According to police records, Ms. Muenzenmayer was driving her Toyota Corolla east on Route 31 and attempted to make a left turn onto Long Valley Road when her car was struck in the rear by a truck driven by George Donald Hess of New Windsor.

The Toyota was propelled into the path of a Plymouth Voyager van driven by Nevin L. McCann, of Glen Rock, who was coming in the opposite direction on Route 31.

Mr. and Mrs. McCann were flown to the Shock Trauma Center.

Mr. McCann, 64, was released from the hospital the next day.

A second passenger in the van, 2-year-old Kaitlin Simons, was not injured, police said.

Mr. Hess was taken to Carroll County General Hospital for treatment and was later released.

Ms. McCann was Carroll County's 22nd traffic fatality of 1992.

Another person who had been seriously injured in a recent accident was released from the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore yesterday.

He is 19-year-old Dennis K. Williams, of Somers Point, N.J., who was critically injured in a two-car crash on Littlestown Pike on Sept. 28.

Michael Patrick Connelly, 25, of Westminster, was killed in the crash.

Mr. Williams is a student at Western Maryland College, where he is on the football team.
