May 04, 2010

FLINTSTONE, Md. (AP) -- Maryland State Police say a blood-covered woman flagged down a State Highway Administration worker after surviving a crash that killed three others on an interstate highway in the western Maryland mountains.

Trooper First Class Justin Buskirk said it's not clear when the car ran off Interstate 68 or how long the woman had been seeking help before the road worker and a passing motorist spotted her around 8 a.m. Tuesday near Rocky Gap State Park.

She was flown to Western Maryland Regional Medical Center in Cumberland.

Buskirk says that by the time he and the road worker reached the woman, she was lying beside the road.

He says the 2008 Mustang from Pennsylvania ended up about 100 yards downhill from the highway.
