Pines resident recovering in Baltimore after accident

(Aug. 17, 2017) Ocean Pines resident Kim Poole is continuing to recover at Shock Trauma in Baltimore following a near fatal car crash last Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of Route 113 and Route 12 in Snow Hill.
Maryland State Police said Poole was critically injured after her white Ford Focus was struck by a blue Doge Durango driven by Brittani Lee Selert, 24, of New Church, Virginia.
Police said Selert was heading south on Route 113 at approximately 2 p.m., when she drove through a stoplight and ran into Poole’s vehicle as she was preparing to enter the highway from Route 12.
Poole, who suffered the most severe injuries, was taken by helicopter to Shock Trauma, while her passenger, Gloria Lambert, was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
Also injured were Selert and her three passengers: Nicole Annetta Parks, a 9-month-old infant and nine-year-old child. All four were taken to Atlantic General Hospital for injuries, according to police.
Poole suffered a ruptured spleen and multiple fractures.
On Monday Maryland State Police officials said charges against Selert are still pending.
