Woman fair after auto crash

January 09, 1998

A Hagerstown woman trapped in her car after a three-vehicle accident was listed in fair condition in Washington County Hospital Friday.

Roxanna Ramos, 41, was driving her daughter Kristin Seilhamar to school Friday morning when her Plymouth Reliant was struck from behind, pushed into the opposite lane and struck again.

Ramos was driving eastbound on West Oak Ridge Drive and had stopped to turn left into the Washington County Career Studies Center's parking lot, said Officer Richard Wolfensberger of Hagerstown City Police.

The car was struck by an eastbound Ford Taurus driven by John Scheldt III, of Manchester, Md. The impact spun the Reliant 180 degrees and into the westbound lane, where it was struck a second time by an oncoming flatbed truck.

Ramos and her daughter were trapped in the car until rescue workers removed the doors. Seilhamar was treated at the hospital and released Friday.

Scheldt, 49, has been charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision.
