Hagerstown man injured in accident

A Hagerstown man was injured Wednesday afternoon when his vehicle struck a lamppost and a residential stone wall on the northwest corner of the 900 block of The Terrace, Hagerstown City Police said.

Forrest Gallatin Stouffer, 26, of 1334 Woodland Way, was admitted to Washington County Hospital, where he was in fair condition Wednesday evening, a nursing supervisor said.

Police said at 4:42 p.m., a Hagerstown fire police officer saw a 1988 Jeep Cherokee swerving on Prospect Street between Hamilton and Oak Hill avenues. When the vehicle stopped at the stop sign at Oak Hill, the fire police officer approached the driver to see if anything was wrong, but the driver ignored him, drove west on Oak Hill and made a right turn onto The Terrace, police said.

The driver continued to swerve and when the vehicle approached the area of Park Lane, it left the road and struck the lamppost and the wall, police said.


Stouffer was taken to the hospital by Community Rescue Service.

Officer Thomas Kelley is investigating the accident.

Men who attempted to take wallet sought

Three men in their 20s tried Tuesday to take a wallet from an employee at the Union Rescue Mission at 125 N. Prospect St., Hagerstown Police Detective Chris Kayser said.

The employee was watching the donation truck for the mission at about 7:45 p.m. when three men who appeared to be in their 20s approached him, Kayser said.

One man, described as black, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 200 pounds and wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans began asking the employee questions about working at the mission.

The other two men walked behind the employee, Kayser said. When the man felt them trying to take his wallet, he ran into the mission. One of the men threw a rock at the employee but missed, Kayser said.

The second man was described as being 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, wearing dark pants, a maroon shirt and a tan vest.

The third man was described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, wearing a blue and black shirt, and blue and black pants.
