Van veers into tree, driver injured

A Gaithersburg man was injured when his van veered from the road and struck a tree in Lisbon yesterday morning, Howard fire and rescue officials said.

Suresh Oza, 34, was in good condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Mr. Oza was driving on Maryland Route 94 near the Montgomery County line at 6:35 a.m. when he lost control of his small van.

The vehicle crashed into a tree and rolled down a 5-foot embankment, said Battalion Chief Donald Howell of the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services.

Emergency workers arrived to find Mr. Oza lying outside the van, suffering from head lacerations and chest injuries, Chief Howell said.

No other vehicles were involved.

Howard County police were continuing the investigation.
