QUEENSTOWN, Md.– Maryland State Police say three people were injured in a serious motor vehicle crash on Route 50 near the Route 301 split in Queen Anne's County on Thursday afternoon.

Troopers said an investigation into the crash revealed that a 1999 Jeep Cherokee driven by 77-year-old Mary Greer of Queenstown was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of Route 50 when it struck a tractor-trailer head-on.  The Jeep then crossed all eastbound lanes and struck a 2006 Hummer H2 and another car, according to police. Greer, along with 56-year-old Herbert Jones and 54-year-old Gale Jones, both of Princess Anne, were flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

The extent of their injuries have not been released.

The driver of the tractor trailer, 54-year-old Ernest Adams of Delmar, Del., was not injured.

Police said the other drivers and passengers involved in the crash were not injured or refused treatment at the scene.

Route 50 was closed in both directions for one and a half hours, but lane closures remained until 8 p.m.
