Driver sought by authorities after accident
MAUGANSVILLE - A driver who fled after causing a van to drive into the median and overturn on Interstate 81 Saturday was still being sought Sunday evening, Maryland State Police said.
Trooper 1st Class Scott Bare said Zamani Shirshah of Springfield, Va., was driving a Plymouth Voyager van north on I81 near Maugan's Avenue when it was hit by a 1983 gray Chevrolet van.
Witnesses told police the Chevrolet had been passing vehicles recklessly prior to the 3:45 p.m. accident.
The impact forced Shirshah's vehicle into the median strip where it overturned and rested on its roof.
Shirshah and his two sons, ages 7 and 9, received minor injuries and were taken to Washington County Hospital, police said.
Shirshah was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said. Bare said he didn't know the names of the juveniles Sunday evening. Washington County Hospital doesn't release condition reports on patients if their names are unknown.
