Woman hurt in wreck upgraded

October 13, 2004

The condition of a woman who was injured nearly a month ago upon being ejected from a car on U.S. 340 was upgraded for the first time Tuesday, a University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center spokeswoman said.

Marijuana Suric, 18, a Maryland School for the Deaf student living in Frederick, Md., was listed in serious condition Tuesday, the spokeswoman said. She had been in critical condition following the Sept. 15 accident.

Suric and Marsha Lahun, 20, a fellow student living in Frederick, were thrown from a 1993 Geo Metro during a single-vehicle crash just past Keep Tryst Road, near Sandy Hook.

Suric, an Astoria, N.Y., native, was thrown over a guardrail and down a bank, sustaining severe head injuries and an airway obstruction as a result, Maryland State Police have said.

Lahun sustained less serious injuries and spent several days at Washington County Hospital in fair condition.

A Washington County Hospital spokeswoman said Lahun was treated and released, but did not know when she was discharged from the facility.
