Pasadena man critically injured as his pickup spins off road


A 24-year-old Pasadena man remained in critical condition yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center after a weekend accident on Solley Road.

Joseph Robert Walters of the 700 block of 218th St. was northbound about 2:20 a.m. Saturday when he lost control of his 1978 Chevrolet pickup and drove off the right side of the road, county police said.

When Mr. Walters tried to steer back onto the road, the vehicle spun counterclockwise and struck a small embankment on the left side of the road, which caused the truck to overturn, a police report said.

Mr. Walters was pinned inside for about 90 minutes. He was flown to Shock Trauma by state police helicopter and treated for severe back and leg injuries. Police said alcohol was a contributing factor.

Bricks are $5 each. A model of the proposed sign is on display in the school lobby. Contributors will be listed in a commemorative booklet.
