Lifelong Towson resident and former Towson Patch editor Tyler Waldman had his condition upgraded to "fair" on Monday at Maryland Shock Trauma, one week after a two-car crash at the corner of East Joppa Road and Goucher Boulevard put him in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Shock Trauma spokeswoman Cindy Rivers said Monday morning that Waldman’s condition was upgraded from critical to serious condition over the weekend, and upgraded again Monday.
As of late last week, Baltimore County Police were still investigating the cause of the accident, as well as which of the two drivers was at fault.
Police said Waldman, a 24-year-old graduate of Towson High and Towson University, was driving a 1999 Honda Civic north on Goucher Boulevard when his car collided with a 2013 Ford Mustang driven by Shervale Kinney, 37, of Rosedale.
Kinney was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Sinai Hospital.
County emergency spokeswoman Elise Armacost said “about 10” fire and EMS units from the Towson and Hillendale stations, as well as the Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company, responded to the scene.
