The Anne Arundel bicycle police deserve a shout out for going the extra mile.
Katie Pohler, 23, was seriously injured in late June—flown to Maryland's Shock Trauma Center—when a car struck her and her boyfriend while they were riding on the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail along Rt. 450. (Her boyfriend's injuries were not as bad.)
Out of the hospital but still recovering, the Anne Arundel bicycle police paid Katie a visit last week, delivering a "feel-better" pizza in the process. The crash was one of five crashes involving cars and bicyclists over a five-day period in Anne Arundel County.
The Anne Arundel bicycle police and the Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (BikeAAA) held a joint press conference following the string of crashes.
Police said alcohol was a factor in the crash involving Pohler, and Bike Maryland, the state's nonprofit bicycle advocacy organization, reported the driver was later arrested on 11 charges including second-degree assault, driving under the influence, reckless driving, and negligent driving.
