July 23, 2002

HANCOCK - A Baltimore woman died early Monday after the vehicle in which she was traveling went out of control, skidded off Interstate 70, hit a guardrail and went down an embankment, Maryland State Police said.

Carolyn Vivian Eades, 55, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on eastbound I-70 near Licking Creek, police said. Eades was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

Police said Arthur McKinley Taylor Jr., 57, of Baltimore was driving a 2002 Chevrolet conversion van pulling a 1998 Sunnybrook trailer east on I-70 at 1:50 a.m.

Taylor lost control of the van, causing the trailer to jackknife, police said. The vehicles skidded off the road through about 75 feet of guardrail, causing the van and trailer to separate.

The van was impaled by the guardrail and went about 45 feet down an embankment. The trailer went over the guardrail and came to rest in a wooded area 30 feet from the van.

Taylor and his front seat passenger, Catherine Elizabeth Taylor, were taken to Washington County Hospital with minor injuries. They were both treated and released Monday.

Both were wearing seat belts, police said.
