Two injured in head-on crash in West Lampeter
BY RYAN ROBINSON, Staff Writer
Two motorists were taken to the hospital after a head-on crash Monday in West Lampeter Township.
Hillary Schwartz, 21, of Lancaster, was driving south in the 1400 block of Eshelman Mill Road shortly after 9 a.m., township police Officer Will Sanger said.
She "was traveling way too fast for conditions," Sanger said. He did not see ice on the road after the wreck, but said parts of the road were wet.
Schwartz's BMW crossed into the northbound lane and collided with a Chevrolet Blazer driven by Amanda Spayd, no age available, of Millersville, Sanger said.
The Blazer then crashed head-on into a telephone pole, he said. The BMW spun two or three times after the impact before stopping in the road.
Lampeter and Willow Street firefighters removed the top of the Blazer and its door to free Spayd shortly after 9:30 a.m., Sanger said.
Spayd and Schwartz appeared to have suffered leg injuries, he said. They were transported by ambulance to Lancaster General Hospital. Eshelman Mill Road was closed for about two hours.
Schwartz will be cited with driving too fast for conditions, Sanger said.
