Separate crashes injure 3

Three people were injured in separate accidents in Carroll County on Sunday and early yesterday, according to state police.

Calvin Theodore Dorsey Jr., 24, of Germantown in Montgomery County remained in serious condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was flown by state police helicopter.

Police said Mr. Dorsey, who was driving his 1991 Honda Civic north on Murkle Road about 1:20 a.m. yesterday, passed another car on a curve in a no-passing zone and lost control of his car near Yorkminster Lane in the Union Mills area.

The Honda ran off the right side of the road and rolled over twice, ejecting the driver, witnesses said.

Helen Marie Yingling, 54, of Millers was treated and released at Hanover General Hospital after the car she was driving south on Water Tank Road at Young Road, in the Manchester area, ran off the road and overturned about 8:15 p.m. Sunday.

Police said the 1988 Eagle Premier came to rest on its roof after striking an embankment.

The victim may have blacked out briefly because there was no indication the driver applied the brakes before the crash, police said.

Also, a man was taken by helicopter to Shock Trauma after the motorcycle he was riding crashed on London Bridge Road where it crosses Morgan Run near Gamber about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

The name of the victim was not available from state police.
