Two people injured in a two-vehicle accident on Route 97 on Tuesday remained in trauma centers in Baltimore late yesterday.

Luanne Bankert, 34, of Hanover, Pa., is in serious and stable condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, while her son, Daniel Reedy, 10, is in fair and stable condition at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, according to hospital officials.

Both of the injured, who were transported by state police helicopter, were in a minivan that was struck when the driver of a second van swerved to avoid an object that fell out of a car in front of it.

The minivan's engine caught fire as the vehicle rolled over on its side. The fire was extinguished by Tfc. Francisco Quisay before emergency personnel from the Westminster and Gamber fire companies arrived.

Two other people who were taken to Carroll County General Hospital were treated and released. They are the driver of the second van, Joseph Swann, 43, of New Oxford, Pa., and Rebecca Reedy, 13, Mrs. Bankert's daughter.
