Two Westminster drivers, including a student at Westminster High School, were flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after a head-on crash on Sykesville Road yesterday.

Both were in serious condition yesterday afternoon.

The 11 a.m. accident was one of seven -- most involving minor injuries or no injuries -- between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. yesterday on Carroll's rain-slicked roads.

Timothy Frame, 16, of the 300 block of Margaret Ave., the student in the Sykesville Road crash, suffered head, leg and internal injuries, state police said. Police said he was not wearing a seat belt.

Police said Judith A. Weiss, 58, of the 3400 block of Pine Circle was northbound on the road near Cindy Lane in Gamber when her vehicle was struck by a southbound car driven by the Frame youth, police said.

Ms. Weiss suffered possible internal injuries.

The drivers were extricated from their vehicles by rescue crews from Reese and Gamber.

They were flown to Shock Trauma in the same MedEvac helicopter.

Earlier yesterday, a woman was taken to Carroll County General Hospital for a checkup after her car was struck from behind about 9:45 a.m. on Hampstead-Mexico Road between Westminster and Hampstead.

Her name was not available.

The woman was driving a Dodge Spirit west when she was struck near Leisters Church Road by a Pontiac Grand Prix headed in the same direction, police said.

Tfc. Mark T. Judge said the driver of the Pontiac failed several field sobriety tests at the scene.

Police arrested Joseph Calp of the 100 block of Church St. in New Windsor for driving while intoxicated, driving under the influence of alcohol, negligent driving, driving on a revoked license, failing to control his speed, making a false statement to police and failing to display a registration card. He was being held on $5,000 bond.

A young German shepherd dog that was on the front passenger seat of the Pontiac was taken to the county humane society.
