Man, woman injured in Frederick wreck

FREDERICK, Md. - Two people were injured when their cars collided on U.S. 15 at Md. 355 Tuesday morning.

Maryland State Police said Estella May Wetzel, 65, of Thurmont, Md., was traveling south on U.S. 15. She attempted to cross the northbound lane of U.S. 15 to turn onto Md. 355, when her vehicle collided with a pickup truck in that lane, police said.

The truck was driven by Jose A. Campos, 50, of Frederick, police said.

Wetzel was treated at Frederick Memorial Hospital and released.

Campos was flown to Washington County Hospital and was released after treatment.

U.S. 15 was closed briefly while the helicopter landed at the accident site, police said.

Police said Wetzel was charged with failing to yield the right of way.

Rain blamed for two accidents

Tuesday morning's misty rain provided no substantial relief to the area's dry conditions but contributed to a number of vehicle accidents on slick roads.

Emergency personnel were working on accidents at the U.S. 340 bridge near Keep Tryst Road, Burhans Boulevard, the Hagerstown Public Square, West Side Avenue and a number of other locations.

Leitersburg firefighters responded to an accident where a vehicle slid into a utility pole shortly after 9 a.m.

No information was available on whether there were injuries in any of these accidents.

Deer hunter robbed

The elation of bagging a deer with bow and arrow turned sour for an area hunter Monday, according to Washington County Sheriff's deputies.

On Monday afternoon, the hunter returned to his vehicle in the Blairs Valley Lake parking lot with his bow and his tree stand, deputies said.

He went back into the woods to get his deer, and when he returned, found his bow and his tree stand had been taken, deputies said. The loss was $800.

Speakers taken

A vehicle parked in the lot of the Battleview Market, 5331 Sharpsburg Pike, just outside of Sharpsburg, was broken into Monday, according to Washington County Sheriff's deputies.

Two speakers worth $110 were taken, deputies said.

Tarps stolen

Maryland State Police said three black vinyl tarpaulins were stolen from the AC&T Station at Md. 63 and Interstate 70 on Monday.

The tarps, valued at $800, bear the name D.M. Kaye, police said.

Three charged with auto theft

Three men stopped in a stolen car Monday night were each charged with auto theft, Hagerstown City Police said Tuesday.

Yeagy and his two passengers were pulled over in the 100 block of West Franklin Street at 10:37 p.m., police said.
