Two girls hit by car while trying to cross Quarterfield Road

A 19-year-old and a 10-year- old were injured Monday evening when they were struck by a car as they tried to cross Quarterfield Road in Severn, Anne Arundel County police said.

Jessica Ann Higby, 19, and Jennifer Susan Mynes, 10, both of the 7800 block of Woodside Terrace in Glen Burnie, had crossed the eastbound lane of Quarterfield and were attempting to cross the westbound lane about 5 p.m. when the accident occurred, police said.

Higby was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and was in serious condition yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said. Mynes was in serious but stable condition in the pediatric unit of University of Maryland Medical Center.

Police said the driver of the 1997 Chevrolet had a green light and that the pedestrians appear to have been at fault. No charges have been filed against the driver.

Annapolis man's car stolen by two female hitchhikers

Two young women held a knife to the neck of an Annapolis man Sunday and forced him to give them his 1991 four-door Isuzu, county police said yesterday.

The women, one described as 16 to 18 years old and the other described as a year or two older, hitched a ride with a 30-year-old man about 8 p.m. Sunday, police said.

The man drove the two from a gas station on West Street to Baymart Shell, police said. There, the woman seated behind the driver placed a knife to his neck and demanded he leave his car keys and get out, police said. The women fled in the vehicle. No one was injured, and the vehicle has not been recovered, police said.
