A Hagerstown woman and her daughter were taken to the hospital Sunday for treatment of injuries following an afternoon crash on Interstate 70, according to Maryland State Police.

At 1:27 p.m., a crash was reported on eastbound I-70 near Md. 66, police said.

Police said a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban driven by David Tuscano, 46, of Monrovia, Md., and a 1993 Chevrolet Lumina driven by Lorisha Washington, 25, of Hagerstown collided.

Police said Washington's car was struck on the passenger side before it entered the median and overturned.

Washington was ejected from the car and flown to Washington County Hospital by a state police helicopter, police said. Her 16-month-old daughter, whose name was not released, was taken by ambulance to a hospital. The name of the hospital and the child's condition were not released.

Washington was listed in fair condition at Washington County Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said Sunday.

Tuscano was charged with negligent driving in the incident, which forced a 45-minute-closure of eastbound I-70, police said.

The crash caused backups for several miles in each direction for more than an hour as motorists approached the slick stretch of road where the wreck occurred, police said.
