September 13, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

State police are investigating a single-vehicle accident that sent the driver to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and caused a three-mile backup on northbound Interstate 97 near Crownsville last night.

A man was seriously injured after his Jeep overturned about 7:30 p.m. near the Farm Road overpass, said State Police Cpl. Marc Price of the Annapolis Barracks. The driver was flown by helicopter to Shock Trauma; his name and condition were not available.

Price said police believe the man was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident, which delayed many motorists heading home from the Eastern Shore.
