A 55-year-old Westminster man, injured on Dec. 11 when the pickup truck he was driving crashed into the rear of a trash truck and killed a collection worker, remains in critical condition at the burn unit of Francis Scott Key Hospital.

Donald Baine Magin of Washington Lane suffered third-degree burns over much of his body, an official of the burn unit said.

Ernest Eugene Poole Jr., 26, of Winfield, a volunteer firefighter for the past 10 years with the Winfield Fire Company and an employee of the Eastern Waste Industries, was pinned between the trucks when both burst into flames, and he was killed.

Another county man sent to Shock Trauma after a mid-December accident, meanwhile, made it home in time for Christmas.

James G. Martin, 19, of New Windsor, was flown to Shock Trauma after a Dec. 12 accident on Route 407 that killed two other county men.

He was released from Shock Trauma on Dec. 24, a hospital official said.
