Girl, 4, and man hurt in 2-car collision on U.S. 1

A 4-year-old girl and a man were injured in a two-car collision on U.S. 1 in Elkridge Monday after a driver failed to yield the right of way, Howard County police said.

The child, whose name was not provided by police, was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Her condition was "not life-threatening," police said. Carlos Anthony Fonseca, 30, of Elkridge, who was driving the child, was not injured. Police did not say if the child and man are related.

Tyrus Soon Fought, 23, of Elkridge was treated at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore and released Monday night, police said.

The accident is under investigation, but police said charges are pending against Fought.

Police said Fonseca was driving his 1990 Dodge Colt north on U.S. 1 toward South Hanover Road about 7: 30 p.m. Monday. As he neared the intersection, Fought attempted to drive his 1994 Pontiac Firebird onto U.S. 1 from South Hanover Road, and the cars collided, police said.
