A Gettysburg, Pa., man has been charged with causing a traffic accident that critically injured a 16-year-old Boonsboro girl last month, according to police.
Charles Henry Thompson, 53, of 1381 Highland Ave., was charged with failure to drive right of center and negligent driving, according to a Boonsboro police news release issued Wednesday.
Alexis Jarman was critically injured Feb. 21 when the sport utility vehicle in which she was riding as a passenger collided head-on with a Buick LeSabre being driven by Thompson in the 200 block of Potomac Street in Boonsboro.
Jarman was flown to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Medical Center in Baltimore, police said at the scene.
Thompson and Jarman’s mother, Lauren Jarman, who was driving the SUV, were taken to Meritus Medical Center east of Hagerstown to be treated for less serious injuries, police said.
