A 79-year-old Carroll County woman died yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore from injuries she sustained in a three-vehicle accident Jan. 9 on Route 30 near Manchester, state police said.

According to police, Julia Ann Longhenry of the 2300 block of Cape Horn Road, near Manchester, was waiting to make a left turn from northbound Route 30 onto Cape Horn Road, when her 1997 Chevrolet Lumina was struck from behind by a 1984 Dodge van, police said. The van was driven by Charles Eugene Rill, 57, of the 400 block of Maple Grove Road, Manchester.

The Lumina crossed the center line into the path of a 2000 Mack T350 cement-sprayer truck, owned by Maryland Portable Concrete of Havre de Grace and driven by Harold Leroy Leonard, 49, of Street, police said.

Longhenry was flown by helicopter to the trauma center. No other injuries were reported, police said. An investigation is continuing.
