Mother, child hospitalized after car overturns, hits pole

November 07, 1995

A 7-year-old girl and her mother remained in fair condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after their car went off Deep Run Road, overturned and wrapped around a utility pole about 6:15 p.m. Sunday.

State police said Kelly Ann Burgan, 30, and her daughter Christina Marie of the 4600 block of Band Hall Hill Road were westbound on Deep Run Road near Kriders Schoolhouse Road in the Melrose area when Ms. Burgan apparently lost control of her 1993 Dodge Shadow, crossed the center and went off the left shoulder of the road.

Officers said the car overturned and slid sideways into the pole. Both occupants were wearing seat belts, and the vehicle was equipped with air bags.

Rescue workers from Manchester took 30 minutes to extricate the injured from the wrecked vehicle. Both were flown to the hospital in a state police helicopter.

Police said the woman had left the home of her parents and was following a vehicle driven by her husband when the crash occurred.
