Glen Burnie man, daughter hurt in crash

May 06, 2002

A Glen Burnie man and his 4-year-old daughter were hospitalized last night after the pickup truck he was driving slammed into a utility pole on Hawkins Point Road, near the Coast Guard's Curtis Bay yard.

Police said the father, 31, was westbound about 6:45 p.m. when he lost control of the 1987 GMC. It glanced off a utility pole and traveled another 130 feet before crashing into a second pole.

Coast Guard Seaman Jason Rawlings and Petty Officer David Donohue saw the crash and pulled the girl from the demolished vehicle. "Both were unconscious," said Rawlings. City firefighters freed the father.

Both were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where the father was in critical condition and the girl in fair condition, police said. Their names were not released.
