martinsburg@herald-mail.com A 17-year-old boy in a wheelchair was hit by a car while waiting to be picked up by a school bus Friday morning, police said. The driver of the car was charged with driving under the influence, said West Virginia State Police Sgt. Deke Walker. Because the boy is a juvenile, Walker declined to publicly release his name. The boy was taken by ambulance to Winchester Medical Center, where a spokeswoman refused to release his condition. The teen is a student at Martinsburg High School, said Mary Jo Brown, a schools spokeswoman.

Brand expansion is the name of the game at Jeep and the 2007 Compass charts a whole new course. DaimlerChrysler's off-road experts division will launch the Compass and equally new Patriot by summer, in addition to a restyled Wrangler this fall. In many ways, the Compass is the most radical of the trio. Radical because, unlike every other model in Jeep's 65-plus-year history, the Compass will come with standard front-wheel drive, not rear-/four-wheel drive. And in another departure from the norm, even four-wheel-drive versions are not rated or necessarily recommended for off-road excursions.

Smaller is better - or at least it's a better seller. It's estimated that the compact sport-utility vehicle segment will double from its current level by 2010 and triple by 2016. Jeep is perhaps the best-known maker of SUVs in the world. Jeep's biggest news last year was the introduction of its biggest model - the Commander. For the 2007 model year, no less than four new models will roll into Jeep showrooms, and with all, the focus is on small. The parade of new product starts with the Jeep Compass.

Here's the dilemma: How do you get the utility of a sport-utility vehicle, without the futility of poor mileage? Jeep's latest take on this target reaches across the pond for its inspiration. For years, Europeans have had gas prices that are even harder for Americans to understand than the French's fondness for Jerry Lewis. One way they've dealt with the problem is by driving diesels. For 2005, Jeep becomes the first automaker to offer a diesel in a midsize SUV in the North American market.

Even though it has been less than two years since its introduction, the Jeep Liberty has managed to make quite a name for itself. It's small wonder why. Brought to market in the fall of 2001, it has struck all the right chords in terms of features, power and tough-guy good looks. It has also more than wiped out any remaining nostalgia for the now-retired Cherokee, the shoes of which many thought would be too big for the Liberty to fill. Slotted between the two-door TJ boulder-hopper and the executive-class Grand Cherokee, the Liberty fights for market share with a growing variety of domestic and import-based vehicles including the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Kia Sorento, Saturn Vue and Toyota RAV4.

HAGERSTOWN -- It wasn't the first time David Brodka had received a mailer containing a key from Hoffman Automotive in Hagerstown. But when he went to the dealership Thursday to see what he had won, Brodka was amazed when he left in a 2008 Jeep Patriot. "I always go in, but I usually get the low prize," Brodka said Friday. After the number on his key/mailer was checked, he was told to wait while the Hoffman staff verified some things. A short time later, Brodka, 44, of Hagerstown, was told he was the winner of a vehicle with an estimated value of $20,000, said Doug Stahl, general sales manager of the dealership on Edgewood Drive.
