Two injured in weekend accident involving car, truck remain in hospital


Two young women who were injured Saturday in a crash involving a tractor-trailer loaded with milk remained at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore yesterday, authorities said.

Sandra L. Conner, 18, of Eldersburg was in critical but stable condition, and Katy L. Tabler, 17, of Westminster was in serious condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Both were passengers in a Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Alexandra H. Koustenis, 18, of Mount Airy, state police said.

Koustenis and the driver of the milk truck, Jeffrey D. Usilton, 19, of Taneytown, were taken by ambulance to Carroll County General Hospital, where they were treated and released, police said.

Police said the Cavalier was traveling south on Route 27 at 1: 30 p.m. and had stopped to make a left turn at Gillis Falls Road. The 80,000-pound tractor-trailer behind the car could not stop and struck the rear of the Cavalier, causing it to veer off the right side of the road, police said.

The truck also veered off the right side of the road and overturned.

No charges have been filed, police said.
