BOE Member Who Caused Serious Accident Breaks Her Silence

A Thurmont woman remains in critical condition.

Frederick, Md (DG) – Lois Jarman, the Frederick County Board of Education member, who caused a three car accident last weekend in Washington County, spoke briefly Wednesday about the incident during a meeting.

Jarman said, “I know many of you have heard I was involved in an accident. I have been updated on the progress of those affected and I continue to keep each one of them and their families in my prayers.”

She then asked for privacy for herself and those involved in the accident. Jarma added she may have more to say in the future.

Jarman was cited for using a hand held cellular device while operating a motor vehicle and failure to control speed to avoid a collision.

Four people were taken to the hospital after the accident for treatment. A Thurmont woman remains in critical condition.

Jarman was appointed to the school board in January and will serve until December 2020. She is the Director of International Affairs at Shepherd University.
