3-vehicle accident on I-95 in N. Laurel injures two people

NORTH LAUREL - Two people were injured and northbound lanes of Interstate 95 just south of the Route 216 exit were closed yesterday morning after a Honda went across the median, struck a UPS truck and ricocheted into a Toyota.

The Honda's driver, Kemah Mahn of Rosedale, and a passenger, Alicia Holmes of Baltimore, were airlifted to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center about 7:15 a.m., state police said.

Mahn, 32, was listed in serious condition. Holmes was treated and released yesterday evening, a hospital official said. The drivers of the other vehicles were not injured.

Some northbound lanes of I-95 were blocked until 10:30 a.m., stalling traffic as far back as the Capital Beltway, police said.

Officials seeking to restore annual Bay Bridge walk

ANNAPOLIS - An Annapolis alderman and a Queen Anne's County commissioner plan to introduce resolutions requesting the Maryland Department of Transportation reverse its decision to cancel this year's Bay Bridge run and walk.

Alderman Josh Cohen, a Democrat who represents the Eastport section of Annapolis, and Queen Anne's County Commissioner Gene Ransom, a Democrat from Grasonville, expect to present their resolutions next week.

Last month, state transportation officials pointed to the high cost of security after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, as well as traffic backups caused by closing a span to vehicular traffic for the walk, as reasons to skip the event this spring.
