The motorist involved in an accident that sent a Baltimore police officer over the side of elevated Interstate 83 has been convicted of three traffic offenses, closing one chapter of a crash that may have ended the officer's career. A District Court judge fined Robert R. Vanderford $260, assessed three points against his license, ordered him to perform 250 hours of community service at a city police station and, upon the insistence of the victim, ordered him to spend two days in jail.

THE CATHY RIGBY ''Peter Pan'' that opened last night at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre is a lively, bouncy presentation, and it isn't just because Rigby, a former Olympic gymnast, is appearing in the lead role. She is certainly an asset, but she isn't the only one; the direction is another. Cast members Stephen Hanan, Lauren Thompson and Cindy Robinson also turn in strong performances.Fran Soeder did the staging, and he has this ''Peter Pan'' moving at a lively pace. At yesterday's matinee, it ran little more than two and one-half hours, and that included the post-curtain business which you will certainly want to see, so don't be too eager to leave the place.

Cathy Rigby may be the bestest flyingest Peter Pan ever. In the Broadway-bound production that opened at the Mechanic Theatre last night, she dips, she soars, she spins and spins and spins, and all at the highest of heights.But that won't surprise anyone who watched the former gymnast in the 1968 and 1972 Olympics.The question is: Does her singing and acting soar?Ms. Rigby's acting definitely has the joyful spunk to make audiences cheer for the boy who wouldn't grow up. If her singing has more character than lyricism, well, keep in mind that she is playing a boy, not a diva.

Donald Everett Rigby, a Baltimore native who as a youth mentor and counselor used an "open door" policy to befriend numerous city youths, died Wednesday of cancer at his Northwest Baltimore home.Mr. Rigby, 64, not only advised and taught disadvantaged youths since the 1980s, but acted as a big brother for many."He was simply just good with children, and children seemed to gravitate to him like a magnet," said his wife, the former Vivian Morgan, whom he married in 1956. "It was just natural that they liked each other."

Teresa Rigby made it through two sentences before emotion overwhelmed her. "I just want to thank all the children and everyone else for all the prayers," she told the children who had gathered to pay tribute. "I appreciate everything. " It's been less than six weeks since the 27-year-old Baltimore police officer was forced off the elevated Jones Falls Expressway in an accident and fell 30 feet to the pavement below. She had been in Maryland Shock Trauma Center, listed in critical condition, and she's now out and getting around with a walker.

As her colleagues scramble to get to her side, Baltimore Police Officer Teresa Rigby utters one phrase over the police radio. "This is 31!" she says. A dispatcher urges her to continue: "Go ahead!" But that's the first and last time Rigby speaks on the 20-minute recording of internal police communications. The recording was obtained by The Baltimore Sun through a Public Information Act request after the crash that propelled the officer off an Interstate 83 bridge on June 21. That morning, the Northern District officer was standing on the northbound shoulder near the Pepsi sign when a Saab struck her patrol vehicle.

Baltimore Police Officer Teresa Rigby was handling the most routine call on one of the city's most treacherous roads. Just three years out of the academy, the officer was watching a tow truck driver hook up a disabled car on the northbound Jones Falls Expressway — an elevated, curving highway with narrow breakdown lanes and lined with Jersey barriers marred with scrapes from cars whose drivers veered out of their lanes. It's a stretch of road where, a former police official says, officers hesitate to pull over speeders because it's too dangerous to stop.

Beatrice Rigby's choice of the flute as an instrument to play in the fourth grade felt as random a selection as what she would eat for lunch that day. But that simple decision to go for the "oooh, shiny" instrument would guide much of the rest of her childhood. She learned quickly and her music teacher at Cross Country Elementary School suggested she try out for the Baltimore School for the Arts' TWIGS program for young city artists. The training at TWIGS prepared her for a place at the School for the Arts, and she will graduate today as an experienced musician and will attend Towson University with the goal of being a music teacher.

Mary Martin was an inimitable Peter Pan; Cathy Rigby imbued the eternal boy with athletic grace; and, in Baltimore, Jefferson Mays brought impish charm to J.M. Barrie's classic at Center Stage four seasons ago. But the most creative take I've seen has to be Peter and Wendy, the magical 1996 rendition by the acclaimed New York-based avant-garde troupe Mabou Mines. Peter and Wendy runs through June 24 at Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth St. S.W., Washington. $55-$74. Call 202-488-3300 or go to arenastage.
