Serious accident results in one extraction and one amputation, four injured

New Market, MD — Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Department was alerted to a serious motor vehicle accident Friday afternoon, June 14, at the intersection of Three Notch Road and Thompson Corner Road.

Mechanicsville VFD units Squad 2 and Rescue Engine 22 with eight personnel arrived on scene to find a two vehicle “T-bone” style accident having one vehicle with entrapment and the other with a priority patient. Crews split into two teams — one assisted with the priority patient and the other with extrication.

“As units responded, additional information was relayed that one patient had a possible partial leg amputation. With this information, Trooper 7 was automatically started,” a Mechanicsville VFD press release read in part.

Maryland State Police Aviation Division’s Trooper 7 responded, transporting the victim with possible amputation to a nearby trauma center.

“A tourniquet was quickly applied to control the bleeding of an open compound fracture to the leg of the priority patient,” the press release reads in part, in regards to the possible amputation.

An assessment of the scene determined there were four patients total and one vehicle requiring removal of the driver’s door.

“Ambulance 296 also transported one patient Priority 2 to an area Trauma Center but later upgraded to Priority 1. Ambulance 1002 obtained one signed refusal and transported one to St. Mary’s Hospital Priority 3,” according to Mechanicsville VFD.

Units operated on scene for approximately 50 minutes.

TBN made calls into MSP to follow up on the status of those injured and there was no information at that time.
