Hampstead accident sends two to Shock Trauma

A single vehicle accident on Main Street in Hampstead late Tuesday resulted in its two passengers being flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

A 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by 27-year-old Kristen Riddle was traveling southbound on Main Street about 11 p.m. when she drove off the road, striking a porch column in the 1100 block of Main Street, the side of a house and a utility pole before hitting a parked car, according to Hampstead Police Chief Ken Meekins.

Meekins said Riddle and the passenger in her vehicle were both flown to Shock Trauma.

Riddle was discharged from the hospital Wednesday morning, according to hospital spokeswoman Cindy Rivers.

The accident remains under investigation, Meekins said.
