A Laurel woman trying to cross U.S. 1 was struck and injured by a car Tuesday night in North Laurel, Howard County police said yesterday.

Marie Perry, 45, of the 100 block of Francis St. was trying to cross U.S. 1 just north of Whiskey Bottom Road about 8 p.m. when she was struck by a Ford Taurus driven by Mary Sauls, 35, of the 1200 block of Myrtle Ave. in Beltsville.

Perry was taken by helicopter to Prince George's County Shock Trauma Center, where she was listed in stable condition yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Neither Sauls nor her passenger, Carolyn Morgal, 33, of the 1000 block of Fort Meade Road in Fort Meade, were hurt.

Police said Perry was not in the crosswalk at the time of the accident and said alcohol may have been a contributing factor.

No charges have been filed.
