November 03, 1995

A Westminster truck driver who was thrown through the windshield of his vehicle when it hit an embankment Wednesday was admitted to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

State police said Charles Lewis Zincon 3rd, 41, of the 300 block of Discovery Drive was northbound on Old Washington Road (Route 97) in Barrett about 2:10 p.m. when the accident occurred. He was not wearing a seat belt and was driving too fast, they said.

Officers said Mr. Zincon's truck ran off the right side of Route 97 near Eden Mill Road and into the embankment.

The sudden stop propelled Mr. Zincon out of the truck through the windshield, they said.

Mr. Zincon was taken to the trauma center by rescue medics from the Sykesville fire station and was in serious condition yesterday.

He suffered severe head lacerations and a chipped neck bone, officials said.


Eldersburg: Sykesville, Winfield and Gamber engines were dispatched to a house fire in the 6000 block of Emerald Drive at 12:17 a.m. yesterday. Units were out 90 minutes.
