A motor vehicle collision on Route 4 in Lothian seriously injured three people Mondaymorning. Just after 8 a.m. firefighters responded to an auto accident reported in the area of Route 4 and Route 258 (West Bay Front Road). Additional callers to 9-1-1 indicated that it was a head-on collision and that there were occupants trapped. Responders located a two-vehicle accident on Route 4 Southbound just south of Route 408 (Mt Zion Marlboro Road). A sedan traveling in the northbound direction crossed through the median strip and struck a long bed pickup truck going southbound head-on.
The 38-year-old female driver of the sedan was trapped and quickly extricated by firefighters assisted by responders from Calvert and Prince George’s counties. Paramedics requested a Maryland State Police medevac helicopter which landed on Route 4 near the scene. The driver of the sedan and an 18-year-old male occupant were flown to the Trauma Center at Prince George’s Hospital Center suffering from injuries that were serious but not believed life-threatening. Another 18-year-old female occupant of the sedan was also transported to Prince George’s Trauma with injuries that were serious but not considered life-threatening. Additionally, 14 and 16-year old male passengers of the car were transported to CalvertHealth Medical Center with minor injuries. The 31-year-old male driver of the pickup truck was transported with minor injuries to Anne Arundel Medical Center.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
