By: David M. Higgins II

UPDATE 3:50 p.m. Golden Beach Road at the crash site is now opened in all directions.

Golden Beach Road between Jane Gay Drive and Laurel Ridge Road has been closed down due to a serious motor vehicle crash.

It is reported on the Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Department Facebook page that there were three patients with one signed refusal. The two other patients were flown out by MEDEVAC, Tropper 7 & 2.

Advisory: The Sheriff’s Office will be utilizing a “drone” as part of a traffic accident investigation in the area of Golden Beach Rd & Jane Gay Dr.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is known.

Watch for emergency vehicles and personnel. Expect an extended closure for accident reconstruction.

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
