Essex-Middle River Editor Injured in Monday Crash

Tyler Jonathan Waldman, 24, is a Towson resident.

Police have identified Tyler Jonathan Waldman, 24, as the driver of a Honda Civic who suffered life-threatening injuries following a two-vehicle accident in Towson Monday morning.

Cindy Rivers, a spokeswoman for Shock Trauma, said Waldman remains in critical condition.

Waldman, of the 300 block of Stevenson Lane, is a graduate of both Towson High School and Towson University. He is also the editor of Essex-Middle River Patch.

Prior to taking the helm of the Essex-Middle River site, Waldman served for two years as the editor of Towson Patch. He is the Towson site's founding editor.

Early investigation shows that a Honda Civic was traveling on Goucher Boulevard through the intersection of E. Joppa Road, Baltimore County police said in a statement. A Ford Mustang, traveling eastbound, struck the Civic.

Waldman was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma for treatment, police said. The occupants of the Ford Mustang were taken to Sinai Hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Police responded to a call about the accident at 9:17 a.m., said Julia Hardgrove, a police spokeswoman.

Officers are still investigating the crash.

Stay with Patch for updates.

Does anyone have any updates on his condition. I can't ask my neighbor as she is not allowed to release that information. I notice the airbags had employed and they are life savors. God what a lousy year with bad news. Why the good ones?
