MOUNT AIRY, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a 23-year-old man is in critical condition at a hospital in Baltimore after crashing an all-terrain vehicle near Mount Airy.

Frederick County Sheriff’s Deputies responded shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday to the accident in the 14000-block of Black Ankle Road.

They say the man was thrown from the four-wheeler after failing to negotiate a curve while traveling at a high rate of speed.

He was taken by Maryland State Police Helicopter to the University of Maryland Medical Center’s Shock Trauma unit.

Police haven’t released the man’s name.
