Three people were hurt Tuesday morning when the truck they were riding in overturned on Route 213 during weather that caused several other accidents, according to the Maryland State Police.
Tessa Snyder, 41, of North East, was driving south with two passengers near Cherry Hill Middle School at about 10:30 a.m. when she passed Jean Hall, hitting the side of Hall’s Toyota Tacoma.
“They were passing me, and they spun out of control,” Hall said, who was not hurt.
Snyder’s Dodge Ram truck stuck a culvert and flipped over, landing on its top. Snyder and her passengers, Darryl Brooks, 43, of Perryville, and Timothy Gough, 44, of Rising Sun, were taken to Union Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Elsewhere, a Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by Lydia McKay and a Toyota 4Runner driven by Eugene Karvois collided on Route 273 after Karvois crossed the center line of the slush-covered road, said State Police Cpl. Phil Criddle.
McKay, 60, of Delaware, was taken to Christiana Hospital. Karvois, 52, of New Jersey, was taken to Union Hospital. Neither had life-threatening injuries, Criddle said.
State Police Sgt. Robert Kerner said the weather also contributed to numerous other minor accidents Tuesday.
Troopers from the North East barrack handled roughly 10 accidents in the county Tuesday, an unusually high number for one day, Kerner said. No particular areas experienced more accidents than others, he said.
State troopers from the JFK Highway barrack responded to about four weather-related accidents Tuesday, but no one was seriously injured in those, said Sgt. Mike Smart.
