Steven Keller, a police spokesman.Two of the boys who were not seriously injured helped lift the van so rescue workers could release those underneath, police said.

All roads leading to Florence won't be named Florence, not if Howard County rescue authorities get their way."It's really confusing," said Lt. Michael W. Gearhart, a spokesman for the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services.What's confusing is that many longtime residents of Route 94 between Lisbon and Florence still tell 911 operators they live on Florence Road, instead of Route 94.That probably wouldn't be a problem if not for the fact that there's another Florence Road, which crosses Route 94 in the tiny community of Florence.

As a quick glance at a Howard County street map will indicate, the jurisdiction seems to have more than its share of roads whose names change as they zig here and zag there.Route 94 in the west county is a prime example. Starting in Carroll County as Woodbine Road, it becomes Florence Road after it crosses Frederick Road in Howard, then changes to Ellicott Road after passing through the town of Florence. Once over the Montgomery County line, the road takes on yet another new name, Annapolis Rock Road.
