One transported to trauma center after Dunkirk crash

By: David M. Higgins II

Dunkirk, MD- On October 8, 2019, at approximately 6:15 p.m. the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department(DVFD) was clearing an accident scene on Route 4 when they were sent to another motor vehicle crash on Route 4 and Mt. Harmony Road.

DVFD sent three units; Squad 5, Engine 52 and Ambulance 59, and discovered a two-car motor vehicle crash with the driver pinned and unconscious.

A MEDEVAC was called in. While en route to the landing zone at Fairview Library, units worked to carefully remove the victim. After removing the victim, they were flown to an area trauma center.

At this time we do not have any updates on the status of the victim and will bring you that only if released by officials.

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 protected]

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
