Prince Frederick, MD- The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office has responded to a serious crash on Southbound Maryland Route 2/4 just north of Lower Marlboro Road. The crash is reported to be an overturned tractor-trailer on the southbound side.

The southbound side will be closed for an extended period of time. The Northbound side is closed on one lane near Cameleer Pass.

Watch for emergency vehicles and personnel. Expect major delays and find an alternate route if possible.

This is a developing story.

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

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
