Oakland Mills man is hurt after failing to stop at sign

February 08, 1994

An 18-year-old Oakland Mills man was injured late last week when he failed to observe a stop sign in Ilchester and his Toyota drove up an embankment, police said.

Kevin Harry Kupferman of the 5400 block of Houndhill Court was flown by state police MedEvac helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after the single-vehicle accident, which occurred about 6 p.m. Friday, police said.

He was released Saturday, a hospital spokesman said.

Mr. Kupferman had been traveling south on College Avenue near Bonnie Branch Road when he failed to make the stop and his 1980 Toyota Tercel went up an embankment, according to police spokesman Sgt. Steven E. Keller.

Battalion Chief Donald R. Howell of the county fire and rescue services said Mr. Kupferman's car came to rest high up the 20-foot embankment, supported by trees and other objects.

"The vehicle was in a precarious position," Chief Howell said, adding that rescue workers had to be cautious in extricating the driver so the car wouldn't roll down the embankment and cause further damage or injury.

No charges have been filed, police said.
