Four-vehicle head-on collision on Route 50

Debris is strewn on the shoulder of Route 50 and Skipton Landing Road Tuesday morning following a head-on collision on Monday, Dec. 11.

EASTON — A driver going the wrong way on U.S. Route 50 caused a four-vehicle crash near Skipton Landing Road in Easton Dec. 11, sending two people to the hospital.

According to Maryland State Police, around 8:45 p.m. Monday, a green Nissan driven by Katie Cray Long, 43, of Centreville was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of Route 50. The Easton Barracks received multiple 911 calls about the car going the wrong way. A short time later, police were notified a vehicle in the area was involved in a head-on collision.

Police said Long struck three vehicles, including hitting one head-on near the front passenger side.

Long and the passenger of the car she struck head-on, Beverly Elzy, 51, of Salisbury, were both flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for treatment.

Long was listed in serious condition Tuesday afternoon, according to a hospital spokesman. No information was available on Elzy.

Route 50 was closed for about two hours at the crash site while Maryland State Police investigated.
