White car sought in connection with crash

February 16, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

State police are seeking information about the driver of a small white car who apparently caused a serious head-on collision late Thursday and failed to stop, a spokesman said.

Tfc. John Dunn said two witnesses and the accident victims told police that the white car was northbound in the southbound lanes of Route 140 in Westminster at 11: 20 p.m.

Donald H. Fischer Jr., 53, of Baltimore was driving south when the white car forced him to swerve onto the shoulder. His Ford van went out of control and veered back across the median, striking a Chevrolet Storm head-on, the trooper said. Fischer was not seriously injured and did not require hospitalization, police said.

Debra L. Judge, 27, of Taneytown, the driver of the Chevrolet, was taken by ambulance to Carroll County General Hospital, where she was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said Friday.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police at (410) 848-3111.
