2 teens injured in Dunkirk crash

Two Calvert County teenagers were injured Friday morning, one seriously, when a green 2003 Ford Explorer they were riding in hit a tree in Dunkirk.

Ryan J. Brown, 18, of Owings was driving the Explorer at high speed on Old Jones Road in Dunkirk about 1:45 a.m. when he ran a stop sign at Ferry Landing Road and lost control of the vehicle. The Explorer ran off of Ferry Landing Road and hit a tree, police said.

Brown, who was extricated from the SUV, sustained head trauma and other injuries. He was first transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital until he was stabilized. He was then taken by ambulance to Washington Hospital Center, where he was in fair condition as of Friday afternoon.

His passenger, John M. Faulkner, 19, of Dunkirk was treated at the scene for minor injuries and released.

Initial investigations revealed that Brown was not wearing his seatbelt. Police also said alcohol was a factor.

"Ryan J. Brown...was high speed...ran a stop sign...lost control of the vehicle...and hit a tree, police said."
The never-ending saga of morons behind the wheel.

Those aged 18-20 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. This article is incorrectly titled because both of those injured are young men and not "teens". This article should've been titled "2 young men injured in Dunkirk crash". Brown was driving wrong by driving at high speed and running a red stop light. Ageist laws to combat this type of driving are not necessary. What is needed is to make sure all drivers, regardless of age, are punished for driving wrong.
