Eastern Boulevard crash victim in good condition

November 08, 2009

A Berkeley Springs, W.Va., woman who was seriously injured Thursday night in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Eastern Boulevard and Chartridge Drive has been upgraded to good condition at Washington County Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said Sunday night.

Pamela Carpenter, 70, had been in serious condition at the hospital.

The crash occurred at 7:37 p.m. Thursday as Carpenter was attempting to turn left onto Eastern Boulevard from the Hagerstown YMCA parking lot, a spot where area residents have been pressing for months to have a traffic light installed.

Carpenter misjudged the distance of an SUV that was driving around the curve on Eastern Boulevard headed toward Northern Avenue, Hagerstown Police Officer Michael Alderton said.

The other vehicle, a 1997 Kia driven by Jamie Baugher, 31, of Taneytown, Md., struck the Pathfinder in the front driver's-side fender, Alderton said.
