This was in Calvert County,
Shirley S. Milligan of St. Leonard and her nephew Keith Suber were riding bicycles westbound in the eastbound lane of Parran Road, the Maryland State Police said. The two were riding along a steep grade on a blind curve.
At the same time, a 21-year-old St. Leonard woman, driving a 2006 Scion hatchback, was driving in the correct lane from the opposite direction, the state police said. When she saw the bicyclists in her path, she swerved to her left, state police said, but Milligan simultaneously swerved to her right.
The Scion struck Milligan, knocking her off her bike, state police said. Milligan was wearing a helmet. She was taken to Prince George's Hospital Center. Authorities were hopeful Tuesday that she would survive. State police stressed this week that bicyclists should ride in the direction of traffic, not against it.
As of Monday, Aug. 6, Milligan was still in critical condition. Brady did not suffer any injuries.
