Sisters injured when guardrail goes through car


January 08, 1995

A 19-year-old Crofton woman drove her car into a guardrail that separated from its posts, slid along the hood of her car, through the windshield between the woman and her sister and out the back window Thursday night, county police said.

The woman, Danielle Lynne Conrad of the 1500 block of Crofton Parkway, was treated for chest injuries at the Prince George's Hospital Center trauma unit where she was listed in serious condition by hospital officials.

Her sister, Colby Lynn Conrad, 12, of the same address was treated at the Hospital Center for cuts and a broken foot and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Ms. Conrad told police she was driving a 1984 Honda Accord south on Route 3 near Johns Hopkins Road about 10 p.m. when she momentarily took her eyes off the road to adjust the heat in the car. She drove off the left side of the road and into a guardrail.

The car rotated 90 degrees and came to a stop with 26 feet of guardrail having passed through it, police said.

Security cameras record computer theft

Security cameras at Computer City in Glen Burnie captured pictures of a man who apparently hid in the ceiling of the store Wednesday night and stole computer equipment worth more than $52,000, the second time that day the store was robbed, county police said.

The cameras recorded a man dressed in dark clothes putting computer equipment in shopping carts shortly before midnight.

Cpl. Frederick Roth of the Northern District found three of the shopping carts outside the rear of the store in the 500 block of E. Ordnance Road.

The thief made off with three IBM computers worth a total of $11,700, three Toshiba computers worth a total of $10,798, four Apple computers worth a total of $17,596 and four Texas Instruments computers worth a total of $11,996.

Earlier Wednesday, a thief stole a modem for a fax machine, police said.
