June 25, 1993|By Staff Report

Westminster Hihg School students David H. Rousch Jr. and Michael Vernon McNeal Jr. almost got away with playing hooky Wednesday, but somebody threw a little light on the subject.

State police reported that the two youths ran into a light pole shortly after 2 p.m. when Mr. Rousch, who apparently was fiddling with a radio dial in the 1990 Buick LeSabre, lost control of the vehicle as he and Mr. McNeal were leaving the school's access road and heading toward Hook Road.

Neither youth was seriously injured, police said.

Mr. Rousch, 17, of the first block of Kalten Road, was charged with negligent driving.

Mr. McNeal, 16, of the 500 block of Sunshine Way, was taken to Howard County General Hospital at the request of his parents, where he was treated and released, police said.
