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.
