The driver of a fully loaded trash truck couldn't slow down in time at a Columbia red light, veered off the road to avoid a car and overturned the truck in a grassy field yesterday morning, authorities said. James Howard and two passengers, who climbed out through the driver's window after the truck turned over, were treated by paramedics at the scene but refused further medical attention after the 9:45 a.m. accident. The trash crew had finished its route in Columbia and was headed to a Jessup dump when the vehicle overturned.

The number of rapes in Howard County rose sharply during the first nine months of the year, compared with the corresponding period last year, while other crimes varied, showing no significant pattern, according to statistics released yesterday by county police. Rapes jumped from 24 to 39 in the January-September period, a 62.5 percent increase. Robberies, burglaries and theft declined, while auto thefts increased from 449 to 526, the report said. Homicides increased from five to six. A seventh occurred Oct. 9 when two robbers shot Kwang Jun Kim, a Jessup deli owner, who died that day. Police officials said they see no trends in the numbers, despite the increased number of rapes.

A man's body was found stuffed inside a large trash can at the edge of a woods in Clarksville last night, but Howard County police were awaiting an autopsy to determine whether the death was a homicide. About 7:30 p.m., two residents of the area were walking in the 7300 block of Guilford Road near Route 32 and spotted the trash can next to the road and near a line of trees, said Cpl. Lisa Myers, a county police spokeswoman. "It's a very clean neighborhood and finding a trash can near the road is unusual," Myers said.
