Maryland State Police say an impaired driver of a 2005 Ford truck caused a six-vehicle crash in Carroll County, Maryland.
Troopers were dispatched to the eastbound lane of Route 140 east of Old Westminster Pike approximately 8 a.m. Monday, to investigate a multiple vehicle crash with injuries. At the scene, the troopers observed multiple vehicles with damage.
Preliminary investigation revealed a 2005 Ford truck was traveling westbound on Route 140 east of old Westminster Pike. For unknown reasons, the driver crossed the double yellow line and hit a 2018 Kenilworth dump truck head on, causing four vehicles behind the dump truck to crash.
The dump truck ended up on the bridge in the westbound lanes of Route 140. The other vehicle were scattered along the eastbound lanes. Troopers closed the roadway in both directions, which were reopened nearly two hours later.
The driver of the Ford truck was airlifted to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for treatment. It was later determined that the driver identified as 45-year-old Todd Selby of Westminster was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident.
The operator of the dump truck was identified as 38-year-old Daniel Kurnik of York, Pennsylvania. The driver of a 2009 Honda SUV identified as 59-year-old Lance Brobosky of Finksburg was taken to Carroll General Hospital for treatment. His condition is not known at this time.
Twenty-one-year-old Andrew Fisher of Finksburg was driving a 2015 Ford truck, 52-year-old David Grahl of Linthicum Heights was driving a 2014 Ford work van. A passenger of the van was identified as 43-year-old Charles Ludwig III of Westminster. Sixty-year-old Joanna Harmon of Finksburg was driving a 2014 Volkswagen.
Charges are pending in the collision, according to the report.
