February 13, 1996

An article in yesterday's Carroll County edition misidentified the driver who police said caused an accident on Liberty Road.

According to police, Vera Bowman of Westminster failed to control her speed and ran into the back of the car carrying four teen-agers.

The Sun regrets the error.

Two South Carroll High School students were at Maryland Shock Trauma Center last night after being involved in an accident on Liberty Road while they were riding to school yesterday.

FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION

A trauma center spokeswoman said Earl Smith, 15 of Woodbine was in critical but stable condition and Kara Dailey of New Windsor was in good condition.

Police said both students were passengers in a 1991 Dodge Colt driven by Kara's sister, April Dailey.

April, 16, was driving east on Liberty Road near West Old Liberty Road when she came up behind a 1988 Isuzu driven by Vera Bowman, 43, of Westminster.

Ms. Bowman was waiting to make a left turn when April's car struck the rear of her Isuzu, police said.

Ms. Bowman was in stable condition at Carroll County General Hospital last night.

April and Evelyn Airey, 17, of New Windsor, a third passenger in the Colt, were treated at Carroll County General and released.

Police said yesterday April was cited for failing to reduce speed.
