Early morning collision on Route 170 injures 3

April 14, 1994

Two women were flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center and one man was taken to the emergency room at the University of Maryland Medical Center after a collision early yesterday at Route 170 and Amtrak Way in Hanover, county police said.

Alyssa Brooks, 26, of the 4500 block of Springdale Ave., Baltimore, and Cionita Placer, 34, of the 600 block of Stafford Hill Road, Glen Burnie, were treated at Shock Trauma. Mrs. Placer's husband, 35-year-old Perlipo Placer, was treated at the emergency room of the University of Maryland Medical Center.

According to police, Mr. Placer was driving his 1994 Toyota north on Route 170 about 7 a.m. when he began to turn left onto Amtrak Way -- and into the path of Ms. Brooks' 1990 Mitsubishi, which was heading south on Route 170.

Ms. Brooks' car passed under a green light and struck Mr. Placer's car on the passenger side, said Officer Randy Bell, a county police spokesman. The impact caused Mr. Placer's car to collide with another car. Police said the third driver required no medical assistance.
