Washington County’s Emergency Medical Services coordinator, who was injured in a car crash last week near Easton, Md., was still listed in critical condition Tuesday night at R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Medical Center in Baltimore, according to a hospital spokesman.

Harriett Mongan, the mother of Brigitte Elaine Heller, 51, said earlier in the day that her daughter was going to be operated on again Tuesday.

Mongan said Heller, of Boonsboro, suffered multiple injuries in the June 14 crash on Md. 50 near Easton.
Mongan said her daughter’s condition was “very, very critical” earlier on Tuesday.

Heller was still listed in critical condition late Tuesday night, a hospital official said.

Some of Heller’s injuries included a broken left femur, a collapsed lung and crushed ribs on her right side, Mongan said.

The Easton Police Department said the accident occurred at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, when a 2006 BMW 750Li being driven by a 17-year-old boy went left of center and struck the 2000 Nissan Xterra that Heller was driving.


Heller’s daughter, Brittany Heller, 19, also was injured in the accident. She was released from the shock trauma center on Sunday, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday.
