One treated after single-car crash

WINCHESTER -- A driver escaped serious injuries in a single-vehicle crash Saturday night in Frederick County.

William Hanna, 65, of Middletown, crashed a 2005 Chevrolet sedan shortly after 7 p.m. in the 8000 block of Valley Pike (U.S. 11), according to Lt. Mike Richardson of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.

The southbound Chevrolet ran off the right side of the road, traveled about 35 yards through a hedgerow and several trees before it struck another tree head on, Richardson said Monday. Hanna was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, according to Richardson.

Rescue workers responded, and had to remove Hanna from the vehicle. They took Hanna by ambulance to Winchester Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Richardson said, adding that he didn't know whether Hanna remained in the hospital or if he had been released.

There were no indications alcohol or speed were factors in the crash, according to Richardson. Authorities charged Hanna with failing to maintain control of the vehicle. The driver told officers he didn't know why he drove off the road, according to Richardson.
The crash caused about $8,000 in damage to the vehicle, Richardson said.
