Snowfall creates morning traffic snarls in Maryland, including crash that left teen critical


HAGERSTOWN, Maryland — Authorities say morning snowfall caused dozens of car accidents on Maryland roadways, including one that left a teenager in critical condition.

In Anne Arundel County alone, police say they responded to 142 accidents between 3 a.m. and 10 a.m. Tuesday. Most were minor, but one involved an SUV that ran into a tree in Pasadena around 7 a.m.

Police say the car was carrying two students driving to Northeast High School and that both were taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore. A 17-year-old girl was in critical condition, and a 17-year-old boy had non-life-threatening injuries.

In Frederick County, a salt truck and a dump truck collided on Interstate 70 near Mount Airy. No injuries were reported.

Many schools were closed in Maryland, though Anne Arundel County Public Schools remained open.
