November 13, 1997

A Mount Airy woman died about eight hours after she was injured in a three-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon near Warfieldsburg, state police said.

Sarah C. Grubson, 80, of the 300 block of Bellview Ave., the driver of a 1990 Chrysler LeBaron, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore by MedEvac helicopter after the accident at 1: 10 p.m. on Route 27 at Stone Chapel Road, southwest of Westminster. She died at 9: 15 p.m., state police said.

Margaret Brown of the same address, a passenger in the Chrysler, was taken by ambulance to Carroll County General Hospital and transferred to Shock Trauma, where she was in serious, but stable condition, a spokeswoman said yesterday.

Charles R. Carroll Sr., 54, of the 5600 block of Woodbine Road in Woodbine, driver of a 1991 Chevrolet pickup truck, also was flown to Shock Trauma, where he was treated and released, the spokeswoman said.

State police investigators said Grubson failed to yield the right of way and pulled her car into the path of Carroll's pickup, which was southbound on Route 27.

After the impact, the pickup crossed the northbound lanes of Route 27 and struck a 1988 Ford truck parked near the southwest corner of the intersection.

The Ford truck is owned by Henkels & McCoy Equipment Co. of Blue Bell, Pa., police said.


Westminster: A resident of Chris Lane told police Tuesday that a cellular phone was stolen from his unlocked vehicle while it was parked at Westminster Elementary School. The loss was estimated at $250.

Finksburg: Employees of Home Farms of Westminster told police that someone broke several windows and a patio sliding door at a home under construction in the 1500 block of Middle Run Road between Saturday and Monday. Damage was estimated at $430.
