Posted on Mar 25, 2011
A Mount Airy car accident involving a single vehicle leaves two men hospitalized after the driver left the road and slammed into a tree. The incident took place on Wednesday morning, March 16, 2011, along Harrisville Road.
According to Maryland State Police, a 2010 Chevrolet Camero was eastbound on Harrisville Road when the driver drove off the road and slammed into a tree head-on. The driver, Michael James Quick, 22, and passenger, Martin Luther White III, 25, both of Mount Airy, were transported by crews to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Both men were listed in critical condition.
Lt. Andrew Winner, commander of the Westminster barrack, said that police could not determine what caused Mr. Quick to drive off the road, since both men were unable to communicate with police following the accident. Police have indicated that it appears that both men were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The Mount Airy crash is still under investigation by local authorities. Anyone with information concerning the accident has been asked to call the Westminster barrack at (410) 386-3000.
