A Carroll County woman and a 5-year-old Owings Mills girl remained in a Baltimore hospital yesterday after a three-car crash Tuesday on Liberty Road near Wards Chapel Road in Baltimore County.

Dorothy Harris was driving westbound on Liberty Road in a 1982 Dodge Aries, which collided with a 1985 Subaru that had slowed to make a left turn into a driveway, Baltimore County police reported.

The Subaru was propelled into the path of an eastbound car.

Mrs. Harris was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and was in fair and stable condition at the hospital on yesterday, a hospital official said.

The driver of the Subaru, Ruth A. Lathe, 36, of Owings Mills, was taken to Sinai Hospital for treatment and released yesterday.

Her 5-year-old daughter, Tiffany Lathe, was taken to Johns Hopkins Children Center, where she remained in fair and stable condition yesterday.

Robert B. Edmondson, 30, of the Westminster area, was released after treatment at Sinai Hospital.

He was in the third car in the accident.

The 8:13 a.m. collision on Route 94 delayed morning rush-hour traffic, police said.

After another accident on Tuesday, four South Carroll residents were treated and released from Carroll County General Hospital.

Three Woodbine residents and a Sykesville driver were taken to Carroll County General Hospital for treatment of injuries received in a two-car crash at about 4 p.m. on Route 94 at Streaker Road.

Nathaniel Knight, 23, Holly Knight, 28, and Joshua Bradley Smith, 9, were traveling northbound on Route 94 in a 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier, which collided with a 1989 Ford Crown Victoria driven by Louella Katherine Garheart.

The Ford was making a left turn onto Streaker Road from southbound Route 94.

All four were treated and released from Carroll County General Hospital, a spokesman said.

Two other children riding in the Cavalier were not injured.

The accident remains under investigation with charges pending, said state police at the Westminster barracks.
