MARDELA SPRINGS, Md.- Three Hebron youths were injured after a pickup truck collided with the car they were traveling in on Route 50 in Mardela Springs, authorities said.

According to Maryland State Police, the crash involving a Ford F-150 and a Nissan car happened on eastbound Route 50 at Athol Road just before 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Troopers said the pickup was in the median attempting to make a left turn onto Athol Road from westbound Route 50, when the driver failed to yield the right-of-way and pulled directly into the path of the Nissan which was traveling eastbound on Route 50. The Nissan was unable to avoid a collision, police said, and hit the pickup. Both vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage, according to police.

The driver and front passenger of the Nissan, both juveniles from Hebron, were transported to a local hospital for injuries. Troopers said another juvenile passenger in the Nissan, also of Hebron, was airlifted by Maryland State Police Aviation to a trauma center for her injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck, Garland Hornsby Jr. of Mardela Springs, refused medical treatment, police said. Troopers said he was charged with failure to yield the right away and negligent driving.

Editor's note: Maryland State Police issued an update press release about the accident that includes the correct name of the driver of the pickup truck. An original release from police misidentified the pickup driver.
