Dundalk Crash Victim Has No Recollection of Incident

Middle River resident Laura Jean Vandenhuerk is unsure if she suffered a medical event or fell asleep at the wheel.

The woman who hit a tree with her car on Merritt Boulevard on Tuesday has no recollection of the crash, according to Baltimore County police officials.

Laura Jean Vandenhuerk, 41, of the unit block of Nacelle Road in Middle River, was driving her 2004 Pontiac Vibe at about 4 p.m. Jan. 22, when her car left the road and according to police Spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.

Vandenhuerk was flown to the University of Maryland's R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center with critical injuries.

"She does not remember what happened," Rogers-Feher said of Vandenhuerk. "She's unsure if she had a medical event or fell asleep, but she does not remember the crash."

No additional information about Vandenhuerk's condition was available Thursday.

it's called "head trauma" when you can't recall what happened! a 'concussion' of sorts. yeah people, before you go being judgemental and critical of my statement, I worked on the Trauma Admitting Floor of Shock Trauma as a Trauma Tech/ EMT. And yes, it very well could've been a Medical Issue originally.

This sort of thing happens on a regular basis and is usually handled by requiring medical okay to re-issue drivers license. If there was a medical event that is something she, once recovered needs to be cleared for driving again. Generally the police will revoke the license until such advice is obtained. It's good she is recovering. That's the good news.

Regardless...I don't see people up in arms about her accident. Why attack people before they can even post. I am glad she is okay. With that said, If she did/does have a medical condition then it is her responsibility to make sure she does not put anyone else at risk.
