FREDERICK, Md. - Two Virginia residents were flown to a Baltimore trauma center after the plane in which they were flying Sunday morning crashed immediately after its takeoff from Frederick Municipal Airport, authorities said.

Maryland State Police and the Frederick Police Department said at approximately 11 a.m., a plane carrying a pilot and one passenger crashed near the airport. State police said the 2000 Trinidad GT, a four-seat light aircraft, being piloted by Robert Borris, crashed into an open field just 300 yards from the Frederick Municipal Airport runway.

The plane was en route to Harrisburg, Pa., according to state police.

Borris, 52, of McClean, Va., and Lynne Murphy, 53, of Great Falls, Va., were flown by state police helicopter to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after suffering undisclosed nonlife-threatening injuries, police said.

Borris and Murphy were in serious condition at the trauma center late Sunday, a center spokeswoman said.
