WellSpan doctor injured in fatal N.J. crash remains in ICU
A WellSpan doctor who was involved in a fatal crash last week in New Jersey remains in a trauma center, according to her husband.
Rich Berkoski said Friday, Aug. 10, that his wife, Dr. Ann Ramage, was still in the trauma center at Atlanticare Regional Medical Center, City Division. That campus, according to its website, is in Atlantic City.
The crash happened in Middle Township, near Wildwood, on Saturday, Aug. 4.
Middle Township Police said that Ramage, 64, and Roberta Blasdell, 65, were injured when a 73-year-old Collingswood, New Jersey, woman crashed into their car Saturday, Aug. 4.
Crash: Berkoski said their family was at the shore for vacation and were on their way back to the York area. He said his wife stopped at a craft show with Blasdell, a family friend, and Berkoski said he went off without them.
According to police, Elizabeth MacNamara was traveling south on Court House-South Dennis Road when her vehicle, a 2016 Honda CRV, went into the northbound lane of travel and struck a 2011 Ford Escape head-on.
The crash happened about 11:45 a.m., and MacNamara was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
Middle Township Police Capt. William Adams said the York County women suffered injuries to their lower extremities.
Days later: Berkoski said Friday his wife was still in the intensive care unit.
“She’s still seriously sick," he said.
Berkoski said they're going to transfer her to York County for rehab once her condition has improved.
Since news came out of her crash Tuesday, Aug. 7, Berkoski said people have reached out to his family to find out how she's doing. Some of them were patients who want to check in because of the impact she's had on them.
"She's a hell of a doctor," he said.
He said she's received some cards while under the hospital's care.
Berkoski said his wife is a "local girl" who was born and raised in the York area. She graduated from West York and did her residency in York as well.
Ramage's WellSpan profile states that she specializes in family medicine and that her office is located at 1575 Bannister St., Suite 1, in West Manchester Township.
WellSpan spokesman Dan Carrigan said Ramage has worked for WellSpan for 19 years.
Blasdell, the family friend, was released from the intensive care unit, according to Berkoski.
