Man treated after being struck by bottle

Maryland State Police are seeking information on an assault that occurred late Saturday that sent one man to Washington County Hospital with a head wound that required stitches.

The victim, Terrance Jamal Grant, a 24-year-old Williamsport man, told Trooper 1st Class D.A. Harper that he was struck in the head with a wine bottle while he was with a group of people at 10433 Sharpsburg Pike south of Hagerstown around 11 p.m. Saturday.

Harper spoke with Grant at the hospital just before he was released. The victim told the trooper that the man who assaulted him was an acquaintance.

Anyone with information on the assault is asked to call 301-739-2101.

Accident sends Md. man to hospital

An accident early Sunday on Interstate 68 sent an Allegany County, Md., man to Memorial Hospital in Cumberland, Md., for injuries he got when his westbound 1985 Toyota drifted into the median and overturned several times, Maryland State Police said.


Jason Michael Riggleman, 20, of Mason Road, Cumberland, was driving just west of the Sideling Hill Mountain exhibit area when the 3:05 a.m. accident occurred, said Trooper 1st Class J.F. Broadwater.

No information was available from the hospital on Riggleman's condition, but Broadwater said the use of his seat belt greatly lessened his injuries.

County man charged after I-70 crash

A Washington County man escaped injury but not charges early Sunday when he crashed his vehicle into a traffic control box on the ramp from westbound Interstate 70 to Sharpsburg Pike, Maryland State Police said.

Mario Andreas Clem, 23, of Showalter Road, had driven his 1992 Saturn off the interstate at 4 a.m. when he lost control, spun his vehicle and hit a concrete curb and then the traffic control box, which was destroyed.

Trooper 1st Class D.A. Harper charged Clem with driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to control speed to avoid a collision.

Clem posted a $10,000 bond Sunday at the Washington County Detention Center, jail officials said.
