Towson resident and local Patch editor Tyler Waldman announced in a tweet that he would be leaving Shock Trauma Thursday, 11 days after he was airlifted with life-threatening injuries following a two-car accident in Towson.
In the tweet, Waldman said he was "being busted loose" at 4 p.m. Thursday.
Waldman, 24, was upgraded from serious to fair condition on Monday, a spokeswoman for Shock Trauma said. He was upgraded from critical to serious condition over the weekend.
So far, police have determined that Waldman's Honda Civic was traveling north on Goucher Boulevard in Towson at around 9:20 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 26.
His vehicle collided with a 2013 Ford Mustang driven by 37-year-old Rosedale resident Shervale Kenney, who was taken to Sinai Hospital with minor injuries.
Cpl. Cathy Batton, a spokeswoman for Baltimore County Police, said Thursday afternoon that the department's crash investigation team expects its report to be completed by early next week.
Waldman is a graduate of Towson High School and Towson University, and was the founding editor of the hyperlocal news site Towson Patch before taking over the Essex-Middle River Patch in August.
