A 21-year-old Baltimore woman was in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center last night as the result of a traffic accident that injured four pedestrians, police said.

Frances Bolden of the 300 block of Birkwood Place suffered massive head injuries when she and three other pedestrians were struck by a Chevrolet pickup truck at 33rd Street and Greenmount Avenue. None of the others was seriously injured, police said.

The accident occurred at 11:17 a.m. yesterday when a Chevrolet Lumina driven by Amber Lynn Davis of the 1900 block of E. 31st St., attempted to turn left onto Greenmount Avenue and struck the oncoming truck, police said. The rear of the truck was forced to the curb, where it struck Bolden, Mary Oforha, 39, of the 3100 block of Clifton Ave., and two children whose names were not released by police.

Neither driver was injured. Davis was charged with driving without a license, driving a car with stolen license plates and failure to yield the right of way, police said.

Oforha and the children were treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
