One of four people injured in a two-car, head-on collision in Hampstead during a rainstorm Sunday evening remained in a Baltimore hospital yesterday.

Linda Marie Martin, 39, of Hanover, Pa., suffered chest, neck and back injuries and remained in Sinai Hospital in fair condition, according to a spokeswoman.

Ms. Martin was the driver of a 1991 Honda Accord in which Clara C. Martin, 72, of Hampstead was a passenger.

The elder Ms. Martin was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore by ambulance and was released yesterday after treatment, a spokeswoman said.

Sean C. Wall, 16, of the 1800 block of Garrett Road, Manchester, who was driving the second car, and Kerry M. Gambrill, 17, of Wil-Mar Avenue in Hampstead, his passenger, were both taken to Carroll County General Hospital and released after treatment.

State police said the 1989 Eagle Summit that the Wall youth was driving north on Fairmount Road near Farm Wood Lane began to hydroplane on a sharp downhill curve and struck the southbound Honda head-on. Police said the Wall youth was cited for negligence in driving too fast for the rainy conditions.
