SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.VA. - Two women were flown to hospitals Thursday afternoon following a head-on car collision on Daniels Road near the Jefferson County Schools bus garage, police said.

The 1:39 p.m. crash occurred when Pamela Norris, 35, of Falling Waters, W.Va., crossed a yellow line in an attempt to pass a BMW, said Sgt. Sam Harmon of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

When Norris approached a small crest in the road, her vehicle collided head-on with a Mazda 626 driven by Connie McCarty, 42, of Shenandoah Junction, W.Va., Harmon said.


After striking McCarty's vehicle, Norris' car struck the BMW, forcing it off the road, Harmon said.

McCarty was flown to Washington County Hospital in Hagerstown and later transferred to Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa., hospital officials said.

McCarty was listed in critical condition Thursday night, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Norris was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where she was listed in serious condition Thursday night, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Two people in McCarty's car, her 14-year-old son, Eddie Rogers, and her twin sister, Bonnie Hartlove, 42, of Shenandoah Junction, were taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital, Harmon said.

Rogers was treated and released and Hartlove was listed in fair condition Thursday night, a hospital spokeswoman said.

No one in the BMW was hurt, Harmon said.

The collision took place about 450 feet south of Shenandoah Junction Road, Harmon said.
