A Hagerstown woman and two Washington County residents were taken to Meritus Medical Center Wednesday following a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Burhans Boulevard and Park Lane, Hagerstown police said.

Diana Rowland, 66, of McDowell Avenue in Hagerstown, and Fairplay residents John Bolin, 45, and Jennifer Bolin, 38, were being treated in the emergency room as of 4 p.m. Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Rowland and John Bolin were treated and released, and Jennifer Bolin was not registered as a patient at the hospital Wednesday night, a hospital spokesman said.

Police Chief Arthur Smith said the accident occurred at about 10:27 a.m., when a 2000 Ford that was being driven west on Park Lane by Rowland’s 68-year-old husband, Terry Rowland, ran a red light.

 Smith said the 2005 Kia that Jennifer Bolin was driving south on Burhans Boulevard struck the Ford where Diana Rowland was sitting on the passenger’s side.

Diana Rowland’s injuries were believed to be serious but not life-threatening, Smith said. The Bolins suffered less serious injuries.

Terry Rowland was charged with failing to stop for a traffic signal, Smith said.
