Student hurt in accident

A 16-year-old Glenelg High School student was seriously injured yesterday morning when she lost control of her Jeep on a road in Ellicott City, struck a tree and then flipped over, county police said.

Kerri Reed Miller, of the 3600 block of Cameron Court in Ellicott City, was flown by state police helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where she's listed in serious but stable condition, a hospital spokeswoman said. She was originally taken by ambulance to Howard County General Hospital following the 7:30 a.m. accident, police said.

The eleventh grader was driving a 1985 Jeep CJ-7 west on Folly Quarter Road, between Jumpers Hill Lane and Homewood Road, when she lost control of the Jeep and struck a tree on the right side of the road, police said. The Jeep then overturned. She was on her way to school when the accident occurred and she was the only occupant of the vehicle.

Although she was wearing her seat belt, she was partially ejected from the Jeep because of its cloth top, police said.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, police said.
