One of 30 to 40 hang gliders in an annual competition held in Ridgely has been flown to a trauma center with multiple injuries, officials said.

The hang glider took a hard landing near Oakland Road and Cherry Lane. Additional state police helicopters are searching for any other competitors in distress between Ridgely and Massey airport in Kent County.

Staff Writer Abby Andrews is reporting from the scene.
