Three injured in two car crashes in Mount Airy

August 14, 1997

Three people were treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center and released after two unrelated accidents in the Mount Airy area Tuesday.

Two women were flown by helicopter to the Shock Trauma Center after a collision at Route 27 and South Main Street on Tuesday night, according to Maryland State Police.

One driver, Terri R. Gaver, 21, of Brunswick suffered a head injury and initially was in serious but stable condition. She was released yesterday.

The other driver, Deborah L. Brown, 38, of the 7200 block of Honeybush Drive, Mount Airy was treated and released.

According to police, Gaver was making a left turn from northbound Route 27 onto South Main Street in her 1996 Chevrolet. Police said she failed to yield to Brown's 1990 Buick that was traveling south on Route 27.

The two cars came to rest against a pole for the intersection traffic light, police said. In an unrelated accident early Tuesday, a Mount Airy man was injured when his car struck two trees and a sign in a single-car accident north of Mount Airy.

Jeffrey W. Murray, 18, of the 4900 block of Jalmia Road was driving a 1983 Toyota Tercel west on Gillis Road about 3: 40 a.m. Tuesday, according to police. His car traveled across the intersection at Ridge Road and hit the sign and two trees on the other side.

Murray, who was charged with failing to stop at the stop sign, was taken by Winfield ambulance to the Shock Trauma Center.
