UPDATE 9:28 p.m.- The article is being updated/corrected to include new facts. The original map location gave a location in Allens Fresh. The corrected address places it in Charlotte Hall.
The initial report of a Tractor-Trailer was incorrect and we have since learned it was a farm vehicle. Both occupants of the vehicles refused transport. But per a family member the driver of the truck, she advised to go to the hospital and did so.
The Aunt of the operator of the pick-up truck has contacted us to confirm she was okay and to give us the newer info that this was a farm vehicle, which we confirmed through independent sources.
As always, when breaking news happens, initial reports are just that… initial. Things can and do change once on the scene. We do our best to correct any mistakes AND also highlight that we did change something. We will update again if necessary.
Allens Fresh, MD- At approximately 7:45 p.m., 9-1-1 dispatch was alerted to a tractor-trailer crash on Oaks Road in the area of Keech Road.
The preliminary information suggests that a tractor-trailer has overturned and that a pick-up truck was either involved in the crash or is underneath the tractor-trailer.
Watch for emergency vehicles and personnel in the area and expect delays
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
