Cyclist flown to hospital for head injury from spill


A bicyclist was in serious but stable condition yesterday with a head injury from a fall on Harney Road near Piney Creek Road.

James Edward White, 56, of the 1200 block of Meridene Drive in Baltimore, was riding with a group of about 30 bicyclists yesterday morning when he hit a spot where a layer of pavement about 1 inch thick had been removed in preparation for resurfacing.

A witness said Mr. White slid for 20 to 30 feet before coming to rest, unconscious.

The police report said Mr. White regained consciousness before a helicopter arrived to take him to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

Mr. White, who was riding a 21-speed Nishiki Sport, was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, police records said.
