A Mount Airy man who lost control of a Ford Thunderbird he was driving, resulting in a crash that critically injured a passenger Wednesday, was free on $100,000 bond at the time of the accident, court records show.

Keith Louis Douglas, 28, of the 7700 block of Pheasant Ridge Drive was arrested last month on charges of assault with intent to murder. Police said he tried to pull a loaded revolver from his waistband when officers ordered him to show his hands during a June 14 drug raid. He was freed on bond June 25.

After Wednesday's 8: 18 p.m. accident, Douglas and his brother Jack Albert Douglas, 29, of the 5400 block of Buffalo Road, who also was a passenger in the Thunderbird, were taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital. They were treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said yesterday.

Another passenger, Timothy J. Becker, was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was in critical but stable condition, a hospital spokeswoman said yesterday.

State police said the car was traveling southbound at high speed on Buffalo Road near Black Ankle Road when it ran off the road. No traffic charges have been filed, state police said yesterday.
