Delegate's parents still hospitalized after crash



CHEWSVILLE - The parents of Maryland Del. Robert A. McKee remained hospitalized Friday night with injuries from a Thursday car accident.

McKee, 52, and his granddaughter Tiffany Childers, 11, who were also in the car, were treated at the hospital and later released.

McKee and his family were hurt Thursday when a pickup truck pulled into the path of their car on Md. 62 at about 12:20 p.m., police said.

McKee's mother, Gloria McKee, 78, was in serious condition Friday night at Washington County Hospital, hospital officials said. His father, Frank McKee, 78, was in fair condition.

On Friday, Robert McKee said he was driving his 1997 Pontiac to a family gathering when a pickup truck ran a stop sign at Old Forge Road and the two vehicles collided.

Charges have not yet been filed against the driver of the pickup, Kaylena Yvonne Williams of Hagerstown, said Washington County Sheriff's Deputy John Martin.

Police said Williams and her daughter were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, but the hospital did not have any information about them.

Robert McKee, R-Washington, said he didn't realize until after the accident that his mother was the only person in the car who wasn't wearing a seat belt.

His mother always makes sure that someone buckles up her husband, who has Parkinson's disease, he said.
