March 28, 2011

Traffic was snarled Monday afternoon after a vehicle crashed in the Dual Highway median at the intersection of Interstate 70, according to a Maryland State Police spokesman.

Gary Leslie Smith Sr., 59, of Hagerstown, told state police he fell asleep in the Ford Ranger he was driving when the accident occurred, Trooper Charles Faith said.

Faith said Smith was coming off Interstate 70 and was about to proceed west on Dual Highway at about 4:15 p.m. when he went straight into the median.

The Ranger flipped after going into the median, Faith said.

Smith was taken to Meritus Medical Center for treatment and later released.

Traffic was restricted to one lane on westbound Dual Highway while rescue officials worked at the scene, Faith said.
