June 28, 1996

Four teen-agers were injured late Monday in a one-car accident on a wet and gravel-strewn road south of New Windsor, state police said.

Police said the 16-year-old driver was going north on Hooper Road when he tried to brake for a curve near Sams Creek Road and the wheels locked. The car skidded 97 feet across the roadway and then traveled another 89 feet through a field before crashing into trees, police said.

Two passengers, Justin Day, 14, of New Windsor and Andrew Foglesong, 16, of Taneytown, were flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where they were treated and released Tuesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

A third passenger, Clayton Parrish, 15, of Linwood, and the driver, Matthew Adams of Taneytown, were taken to Carroll County General Hospital, where they were treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Police are continuing an investigation.
