After an SUV crashed into Kevin Mellett at the Maritime Autowash on Solomon's Island Road, dozens of Patch readers sent emails and messages asking about Mellett's condition.
Mellett, 45, of Odenton was flown with serious, life-threatening injuries to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore on Aug. 18 after a black GMC Acadia crashed into him and pushed him through Maritime's front window, said an eye witness.
Price Gielen, a Baltimore-based attorney who represents Mellett and his wife Sheryl, issued the following statement to Patch regarding Mellett's health status:
"On behalf of the Melletts, we sincerely thank you and your readers for their expressions of concern. Kevin is still a patient at Shock Trauma. His injuries were life-threatening, but thanks to the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff at Shock Trauma, after numerous and extensive surgeries, he is stable and progressing. The road to recovery will be very difficult, but Kevin is fortunate to have a very loving and supportive family."
