A 2-week old baby was flung from a car seat and his mother suffered minor injuries when their car drifted off Shady Side Road Tuesday and rolled over several times.

Dylan Brady, strapped into the back seat, ended up on the car's back seat virtually unharmed, county police said.

He was treated at Children's Hospital in Washington for a bruise to his head and was to be released yesterday, police said.

His mother, 22-year-old Tina Brady of the 1300 block of Butternut St. was treated at Washington Hospital Center and released.

Police said Brady was northbound on Shady Side Road about 1: 30 p.m. when her car drifted into a ditch on the right shoulder.

Witnesses told police the car rolled over three or four times, hit a bush and crashed into a group of landscaping poles, which stopped the car.

Fire destroyed a vacant house on Mountain Road early yesterday, a county EMS/Fire/Rescue spokesman said. No one was injured.

Firefighters spent three hours battling a blaze at the one-story house in the 4600 block of Mountain Road. A neighbor called 911 shortly before 1 a.m. saying he had been smelling smoke for 15 minutes and had seen an orange glow through the woods.

When firefighters found the house, it was engulfed in flames, said Lt. Bob Rose, fire spokesman. About 40 firefighters battled the blaze for three hours.

The house, owned by SWG and Associates and worth about $150,000, was a total loss, Rose said.

Investigators said the fire began in the kitchen. The cause was being investigated.
