A 17-year-old Greencastle, Pa., girl who was trapped in a wrecked vehicle for about 11 hours over the weekend before she was found is in serious condition at a Baltimore hospital.

Malory Morgan Marie Weller was upgraded from critical to serious condition at R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday afternoon.

Weller’s mother, Tressa Weller, said her daughter was “alert and talking and moving.”

Malory Weller was driving a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer northwest of Clear Spring on Saturday night when the  vehicle left the roadway, struck a tree and rolled over, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The Chevrolet landed upright off Catholic Church Road, about three miles south of the Franklin County, Pa., line.

Tressa Weller said her daughter left a friend’s house Saturday between 9 and 9:30 p.m. She said the accident scene was about a 20-minute drive away.


A passing motorist found the vehicle Sunday at 8:44 a.m. and called 911, a Washington County Emergency Services dispatcher said.

Malory Weller was flown by a Maryland State Police helicopter to the shock trauma center.
