Two Howard County teens injured in collision
Two Howard County teenagers were injured Thursday morning in a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of Quarterstaff Road and Freetown Road in Columbia, police said.
Howard County Police said the collision happened about 7:15 a.m. Three teenagers in a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant were traveling westbound on Quarterstaff Road to pick up a fourth teen before heading to classes at Atholton High School. The driver attempted to cross Freetown Road when the car was struck by a 2007 Mack trash truck traveling northbound. Police say they believe the driver of the truck had the right of way.
After being hit, the car with the teenagers crossed the southbound lane of Freetown Road and struck a 2008 Volvo V70 station wagon at a stop sign on the opposite side of Quarterstaff Road.
One of the teenagers who was sitting in the backseat was not wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected through a rear window. Seung Lee, 17, of Ellicott City, was taken by ambulance to Shock Trauma with non-life threatening injuries. Morgan Hill, 18, who was sitting in the front passenger seat of the car was transported to Howard County General Hospital as a precaution. The 17-year-old driver of the Mitsubishi, who was not identified, was not injured. He was cited at the scene for negligent driving and violating a restriction of his provisional license by allowing a passenger to ride without a seat belt. He is not identified because he is a juvenile facing charges.
The driver of the Mack trash truck, Kevin Louis Williams, 30, of Baltimore, was not injured. The driver of the third car, Robin Holt, 34, of Owings Mills, and a 1-year-old child in a car seat in the back seat of the car, were not injured.
