Woman hurt after car leaves road, hits pole

A 20-year-old Finksburg-area woman was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after the car she was driving went off the road and traveled about 325 feet in a field of clover before crashing into a utility pole about 7:50 a.m. yesterday.

Mary Cosden of the 2200 block of Carrollton Road was driving her Toyota Celica west on Dutrow Road when the car ran off the right side of the road and climbed a small embankment before crashing into a pole on the passenger's side of the car.

The utility pole was embedded about halfway into the car, but the driver was not trapped by the impact, said state police Tfc. Mark Judge.

Ms. Cosden sustained head injuries in the collision and was given emergency treatment at the scene by the crew of a medic unit from the Reese fire company.

The victim, who was alone in the vehicle, was flown to the hospital by state police MedEvac helicopter and remains in fair and stable condition, according to a spokeswoman.

The accident occurred about one mile east of Gorsuch Road.
