Rider thrown from pickup

November 05, 1996

An Easton man was thrown from a truck Friday as it careened off a curb on the southbound lanes of Ritchie Highway near McKinsey Road and bounced into the northbound lanes, county police said.

Justin Baylem Thom, 23, of Easton, who was not wearing a seat belt, was treated at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and was released Sunday.

The driver, Kevin Christopher Thomas, 19, of Centreville in Queen Anne's County, suffered minor injuries and was not hospitalized.

Police said Thomas was traveling south in a 1988 Mazda pickup, weaving in and out of traffic just before 10 p.m., when he lost control and the truck caromed off a curb into the northbound lanes.
