Three hurt in I-95 crash

Three people were seriously injured Sunday afternoon in a fiery, three-vehicle crash on Interstate 95.

State police said that a northbound Nissan Maxima driven by Robert Allan Rosen, 47, of Reston, Va., ran off the road just north of Route 32 about 2:30 p.m., striking a Jeep Cherokee that had parked on the shoulder. The Jeep then struck a U-Haul truck that was stopped in front of it, before crossing the northbound lanes and bursting into flames, police said. The Jeep's gas tank ruptured during the impact of the crash, a county fire and rescue services official said.

The driver of the Jeep, Charlene Sue Lawrence Ryan, 50, of West Chester, Pa., was flown by state police helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where she was listed in critical but stable condition yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said. Her husband, Keith Ryan, 46, who was in the U-Haul truck, was not injured.

Mr. Rosen's son, Eli Samuel Rosen, 13, was taken by ambulance to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in fair and stable condition yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Mr. Rosen suffered a collapsed lung, a broken rib and toe, state police said. He was also in fair and stable condition.

State police said no charges had been filed. The accident is still under investigation.

County talent raises money for heart group

County Executive Charles I. Ecker did a soft shoe, Malynda Madzel of Custom Telemarketing did a shimmy and Roy Felipe of the Howard County Family YMCA did a lip sync as local celebrities gathered to raise money for the Howard County Division of the American Heart Association.

The antics were part of the Celebrity Celebration for the Heart held recently at Historic Savage Mill. Over $11,000 was raised through the services and entertainment provided by the celebrity waiters and waitresses.

"Celebrity Celebration for Heart was a great success," said event chairwoman Lynne Warshaw of Nations Bank. "The waiters and waitresses were fantastic, the guest were generous and everyone had a great time."
