Five people were taken to the hospital early Sunday after the Ford Mustang they were riding in overturned on U.S. 40 near the Wonder Bread building, Maryland State Police said.
According to police, a 1996 Ford Mustang clipped the mirror of a Chevrolet Cavalier in the westbound lane of U.S. 40 at about 1:50 a.m. and then flipped several times near the Wonder Bread building.
The vehicle was traveling at "an extreme high rate of speed" when the driver lost control, said Trooper 1st Class Rob Embly. He said witnesses estimated the speed of the car was more than 100 mph.
