November 28, 2003|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

While traffic was heavy at times in the area, area police and emergency service agencies reported no major problems Wednesday night through Thursday.

One traffic accident on Interstate 70 in Frederick County, Md., tied up traffic briefly, Maryland State Police said.

A white Mitsubishi passenger car veered off eastbound I-70 on Braddock Mountain, stalling traffic for about an hour, Maryland State Police in Frederick said.

Sgt. Robert Reid said a man and a juvenile were taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital for treatment, but he had no further information on their identities or the cause of the accident.

The car veered off the right-hand shoulder down an embankment west of U.S. 40, Reid said. Police were called at about 6:42 p.m. Traffic lanes were reopened about 8 p.m.

"It's been quiet," Lowry said.
