A single car crash on evening of Wednesday in Havre de Grace , which made the police search for other possible victims other than the driver, is suspected to have been caused by drugs and alcohol as well as speed and failure to pay attention.

Deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Earlton Road for a reported car accident at about 9:30 in the evening of Wednesday. Information from Harford County Sheriff’s Office states that a blue Kia Rio was flipped over in the southbound lane. A lucid patient, who identifies herself as Leigh Ann Harkins from Delta, Pa., is being treated by the medics.

The police said that Harkins told them that she did not know where she was and how she got there.

Initially, Harkins informed the police that she was the passenger of the car. The police searched for other victims in the area but Harkins informed them later on that she was actually the driver.

Her vehicle had flipped during the time she was driving up a hill that leads to the 100 block of North Earlton Road. She was brought to Maryland Shock Trauma, as a precaution, in Baltimore despite appearing not to have any life-threatening injuries.

Charges were not filed but the case is pending and is waiting for the test results.

A head-on collision in Fallston resulted for a 40-year-old male driver to be airlifted to regional trauma center whilst the other driver was brought to a local hospital, said Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association Spokesperson Rich Gardiner.

A little while later, EMS also responded to an accident wherein a vehicle fell down on an embankment on the southbound side of Route 1, just north of the Winters Run bridge. The vehicle was overturned and minor injuries and minor entrapment was involved, said Gardiner.

No information is further available on both accidents on Thursday evening.
