Two people were killed yesterday when a sport utility vehicle they were riding in rolled off a highway ramp in southern Howard County and into a ravine, authorities said. County fire Capt. J. Mark Richards said the accident at 9: 23 a.m. occurred as the 1999 Ford Explorer moved off northbound U.S. 1 onto a ramp leading to westbound Route 32. The vehicle went airborne and rolled into a rocky, wooded ravine. The driver, a 38-year-old Laurel woman, was trapped inside, belted into a seat.

It was broad daylight as the 17-year-old community college student left her bus near busy Edmondson Avenue in Catonsville. Two men in a gold SUV pulled up and forced her at gunpoint into the back seat, where police said one raped her, then stole her phone and wallet. Later that day, a young couple was stopped by a similar truck. The two men inside offered a ride, but refused to let the man and woman out until they relinquished their cash. The incidents came just about a week after an 18-year-old had told police she was abducted, robbed and sexually assaulted in what authorities believe was the same Ford Explorer.

The problem: An abandoned Ford Explorer has sat on a Park Circle median for at least two months. The backstory: Parking is tight along the 3400 block of Hilldale Place just north of Druid Hill Park, but resident Lillian Moore knew the red Ford Explorer had to go. Hilldale and Cotwood Place form a circle around a grassy median where two months ago Moore noticed the SUV - with its front fender wrapped around a tree. Since then, someone either pushed or pulled the Explorer to the top of the hilly median, but there it has sat with its dented fender but without license plates or other identifying information.

It was a sunny day last month when Dick Gelfman finally dusted off his "sinister blue" Harley-Davidson motorcycle and went for a spin. A ride to a friend's house in nearby Mount Hebron wouldn't have meant much last year. But after what Gelfman has been through the past year, this was monumental. The affable newsman - whose televised "Get Gelfman" segment on WJZ-TV has made him a go-to guy for Maryland consumers with complaints - has struggled to recover from the fiery automobile crash one year ago yesterday that killed a teen-age girl and seriously injured him and his wife, Howard Circuit Judge Lenore R. Gelfman.

An incident of road rage in Gambrills Monday led to a stabbing, a two-car crash and an arrest, police said. Ross Brandon Sudbrook, 23, of Old Riverside Drive in Baltimore, has been charged with assault and reckless endangerment as a result of the stabbing. Police found several injured people and two heavily damaged vehicles at about 4 p.m. near the intersection of Route 3 north and Churchview Road. A Ford Explorer and a PT Cruiser were in a drainage ditch. Investigators said the accident and assault stemmed from an altercation between the driver of the Explorer and a 23-year-old male passenger in the other car. Police said that the driver and passenger in the Explorer exchanged seats on at least one occasion at another intersection along Route 3 and the delay led to an exchange of words between the occupants of the two vehicles.

Two years ago, John T. Bullock was walking his dog near his home on Baltimore's West Lafayette Avenue when three pit bulls escaped from a nearby yard, charged over to Bullock and his dog and attacked them both. "The police showed up right away and took care of it," Bullock recalled. "One officer even came to the emergency room — I was having my hands stitched up — to ask me how I was doing. He followed up. " Bullock, 32, an assistant professor in political science at Towson University, was impressed — and he wanted to know more about how the police do their jobs and how to establish a working relationship with the officers in his neighborhood.
