Five people were injured in a three-vehicle crash on Dual Highway Wednesday morning, according to Maryland State Police.

Police said a 1998 dump truck driven by Robert Milburn and a 1994 Ford Mustang driven by Joann Golden had stopped in the right lane around 8:30 a.m. for a school bus that was boarding children.

A 1999 Ford pickup truck driven by Joseph Caviness struck the rear of the Mustang, which was rammed into the dump truck in front of it, state police said.

Rescue crews had to cut the roof off the Mustang to free Golden, 28, of Hancock, and her passengers Christy Morgan and Michael Morgan.


Golden was listed in fair condition and Christy Morgan was in good condition at Washington County Hospital Wednesday night.

Michael Morgan, 11, was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where he was listed in critical condition, a spokeswoman said.

Caviness, 27, of Maugansville was discharged from the emergency room at Washington County Hospital. His passenger, Courtney Caviness, 1, was not admitted, a spokeswoman said.

State police said Milburn was not injured.

The accident occurred on westbound Dual Highway near the Interstate 70 ramp. The ramp from westbound I-70 was temporarily closed following the accident.
