Two Carroll County traffic accidents Monday sent two Baltimore County motorists to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
One of the victims was released from the hospital yesterday and the other was in fair condition.
Nancy Horner Jones, 65, was driving north on Route 30 in a 1995 Lincoln Town Car about 4 p.m. when the vehicle sideswiped a telephone pole and ran off the road into a wooded area near Cape Horn Road, Maryland State Police said.
The Lutherville resident was flown to the trauma center from North Carroll Middle School by state police helicopter.
The accident occurred as fire and medical crews in the area were rushing to a four-alarm apartment fire off Locust Street.
Emergency personnel from outside the Manchester area responded to the accident.
The accident also snarled traffic on Hanover Pike during the height of afternoon rush hour.
Ms. Jones was released yesterday from the trauma center, a hospital official said.
Earlier Monday, a 35-year-old Pikesville man was injured when he failed to stop at the intersection of Green Valley and Union Bridge roads.
Ernest G. Lutz, 35, of Pikesville was driving south on Green Valley Road in a 1988 Chevrolet Blazer about 6 a.m. when the vehicle ran a stop sign and struck a tree, state police said.
Mr. Lutz was taken to the trauma center by the Union Bridge Volunteer Fire Department ambulance, and was in fair condition yesterday, hospital officials said.
Police reports indicated that no charges are pending in either accident.
