HANCOCK — A 22-year-old Hancock woman who was flown to a Baltimore hospital Monday morning after her vehicle struck the back of a tractor-trailer on Interstate 70 has been released, a hospital spokesman said.

Elizabeth Hinckle was released from the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Medical Center in Baltimore at about 5 p.m. Monday, the spokesman said.

Maryland State Police troopers said Hinckle was driving a 2005 Kia east on I-70 at about 3:40 a.m. when her car struck the rear of a tractor-trailer near the 4-mile marker east of Hancock.
