Family's camper overturns on Route 140

A family returning to Baltimore after a camping trip in Gettysburg, Pa., got an unpleasant surprise as the camper they were pulling behind their car began swerving and overturned on Route 140 between Bethel and Sandymount roads about 6 p.m. Sunday.

Steven and Linda Svec and their children, Eddie, 5, and Christina, 3, were unhurt when the camper fell across one lane and the shoulder of the roadway, they said.

"That's why they tell you never to ride in a camper," said Mrs. Svec, as a tow truck tried to right the camper.

Traffic was slowed briefly in one lane near the accident.
