Calvert County, MD - 1/14/2013
By Press Release
Calvert County deputies responded to a number of motor vehicle collisions this past weekend, although none of them were attributed to the foggy weather conditions.
DFC W. Wells responded to the traffic signal at Md. Rt. 4 north and Cox Road in Huntingtown on January 11 at 7:00 p.m. for a reported motor vehicle crash. A 56-year-old man from Huntingtown advised that he had stopped his vehicle, a 2004 Honda van, for a red light when he was struck from behind by a 1997 Ford Ranger pick-up truck being driven by a 27-year-old male of Huntingtown. The Ford was being driven at a low rate of speed so damage to both vehicles was minor. The driver and one passenger, a seventeen-year-old female, of the Honda were transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. A second passenger, a fifty-two-year old woman who had been seated in the front passenger seat, was taken by ambulance to Baltimore Trauma Center with minor injuries. The driver of the Ford was cited for failure to reduce speed in dangerous weather (rain) and highway conditions and failure to control vehicle speed on highway to avoid collision.
On January 11 at 7:45 p.m. DFC J. Bell responded to the area of Golden West Way and Santa Rosa Road in Lusby for a single vehicle crash. A 1993 Chevrolet truck, driven by a twenty-year-old male from Huntingtown, skidded into a telephone pole and a cable box on a sharp turn. The driver was transported by ambulance to Calvert Memorial Hospital with unknown injuries.
On January 13 at 6:12 p.m. a 1999 Pontiac was traveling north on Huntingtown Road when it approached a 90 degree turn and suddenly left the roadway. The vehicle hit an embankment, spun around and struck a tree with the rear driver’s side. The car overturned onto its’ roof. The driver, a thirty-seven-year-old female from Sunderland, was uninjured and refused medical treatment.
On Sunday January 13 at 6:44 p.m. Cpl. G. Shrawder responded to Md. Rt. 4 south at Main Street in Prince Frederick for a motor vehicle collision. A 1997 Chevrolet driven by a fifty-eight-year-old man from Charlottesville, Virginia, crossed northbound Md. Rt. 4 and was attempting to turn left onto southbound Md. Rt. 4 when he pulled into oncoming traffic and was struck by a 2012 Toyota four door vehicle driven by a 22-year-old female from Hollywood. An 82-year-old female passenger in the Chevrolet and the driver of the Toyota were both transported by ambulance to Calvert Memorial Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries. The offending vehicle driver was cited for failure to yield right-of-way.
