November 21, 1996

A White Hall man's left leg was severed Tuesday after a car slammed into him while he was unloading materials from his parked truck in Hampstead.

Jerry L. Weeks, 38, was in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, a hospital spokeswoman said yesterday.

Police said a Buick Century driven by Jack G. Nash, 68, of Manchester drifted to the right while traveling north on Main Street at 2: 10 p.m. and struck Weeks, who was standing behind the truck on the shoulder.

The impact pushed the truck forward 54 feet. Weeks, who was pinned under the truck, also suffered head injuries, police said.

Nash was in stable condition at Carroll County General Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said yesterday.
