November 07, 1995

A 49-year-old Taneytown man was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after driving into the rear of a stopped vehicle yesterday morning.

Jacob Ross Williar of the 700 block of Hapes Mill Road remained in serious condition at the trauma center yesterday evening, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

State police said Mr. Williar was driving his 1974 Jeep on West Baltimore Street when he hit the rear of a 1987 Ford Bronco that had stopped to wait for traffic before making a left turn into Memorial Park Road.

The Bronco, driven by Richard Michael Myers, 48, of Littlestown, Pa., was pushed into the path of a southbound 1994 Chevrolet truck, police said. The truck was driven by Marvin Lee Carr III, 31, of Hanover, Pa. Police said neither man was injured.

Tfc. Phillip Henry, the investigating officer, said speed might have been a factor.
