A 31-year-old Glen Burnie man injured in an Oct. 4 traffic accident has died at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, county police said yesterday.

Scott Edward Peacock, who lived in the 300 block of Oak Manor Road, died shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday as "a result of injuries sustained from the crash," said Chuck Jackson, a spokesman at Shock Trauma.

Though state confidentiality laws forbid the release of more specific information about Mr. Peacock's injuries, a police report made the day of the accident indicated that Mr. Peacock received severe head injuries.

Mr. Peacock was in serious condition when he arrived at Shock Trauma shortly after the accident. Authorities said he had been driving his 1983 Toyota station wagon south on Ritchie Highway about 4 p.m. when a 1994 Chevrolet van ran into his vehicle as he tried to make a left turn onto Eighth Avenue.

Diana Brigley, 21, a passenger in Mr. Peacock's station wagon, also was injured. Ms. Brigley, of the same address as Mr. Peacock, was treated at Shock Trauma and released later that day. The van's driver was not injured, police said.

Investigators said that the van did not yield the right of way and that charges are pending against the van's driver, Gregory John Wisner, 30, of the 7500 block of Old Stage Road.

All fatal traffic accident cases are turned over to the state's attorney's office for review, police said.

Sgt. Robert Johnson, a Police Department spokesman, said Mr. Peacock was the 22nd person to die this year in a county traffic accident.
