Four Westminster women, injured in two auto accidents this week, were flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Two were released within a day; the others remained hospitalized.

Those still in the hospital were identified as Tina Utz, 26, and Marta Pramschufer, 82.

They were driving cars that collided at Route 97 and Mary Avenue in Westminster about 4 p.m. Tuesday, state police said.

Ms. Utz, was trapped in her Chevrolet Celebrity for about 20 minutes until medic and rescue crews from the Westminster fire station pried open one of the doors to free her. She was listed in serious condition yesterday.

Police said Ms. Utz pulled out of Mary Avenue eastbound in front of a southbound Buick Century driven by Ms. Pramschufer. The Chevrolet was struck in the left side and spun around as the Buick ran across Route 97 and off the left side of the highway, climbed an embankment and stopped.

Ms. Pramschufer was knocked into the passenger seat and was given oxygen at the crash site while medics attended to her injuries. She was removed in the state police helicopter. She was listed in stable condition yesterday.

Two women who were hurt in a crash at Route 31 and Stone Chapel Road about 6 p.m. Wednesday and flown to the same trauma center had been released by yesterday.

EdieAnn Snader, 28, was the driver of a Volkswagen Rabbit. Her passenger was identified as Debora Bean.

State police said the Volkswagen was eastbound on Route 31 when it collided with a pickup truck driven by Bart Bauerlien, 31, of New Windsor. The truck was westbound on Route 31 and made a left turn in front of the Volkswagen, officers said.
