August 01, 2003

Two upcoming local blood drives have been dedicated to Karen Worthington, who was involved in a serious car accident just before she was to graduate with the class of 2003 at Clear Spring High School.

Those drives are from 2 to 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 4, at the Maugansville Ruritan Building, and from 1 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 5, at St. John's United Church of Christ in Clear Spring, according to the American Red Cross chapter in Washington County.

While a patient at University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, Karen received close to 50 units of blood, a Red Cross spokesman said.

She is now home and continues to recuperate from her injuries.
