March 10, 1993|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Staff Writer

A 43-year-old New Windsor woman was injured yesterday when the car she was driving collided with another on Littlestown Pike near Westminster, jumped a curb, went down a 10-foot embankment, climbed the other side and came to rest about 150 feet away.

Darlene Carbaugh was taken to Carroll County General Hospital with facial and lower-back injuries by a medic unit from the Westminster fire company after the 4 p.m. accident.

A 24-year-old woman in the second car was taken to the same hospital for examination.

Rick Carbaugh, a passenger in the 1973 Pontiac driven by Darlene Carbaugh, said he and his wife were on the off-ramp from Route 140 toward Littlestown Pike when the crash occurred.

State police were investigating.

In an accident that occurred Monday nearby, on Route 140 near Sullivan Road, in which two Taneytown teen-agers were injured, the driver of the car, Holly Galandak, 16, remains in fair and stable condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. The passenger, Elizabeth Louise Ward, 17, was released Monday evening after treatment there, according to a spokesman.

Both youngsters were thrown from the car as it somersaulted into a ravine and landed on its roof.
