CALIFORNIA, Md. — We are receiving reports this evening of a serious motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle that is sending two to a nearby trauma center.

At approximately 8:00 p.m. on September 16, first responders were called to the scene on Wildewood Parkway, in the area of Hickory Nut Drive for a reported crash.

Crews would arrive and locate a car and motorcycle still in the roadway.

Two patients had sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash. EMS on the scene determined that a MEDEVAC was necessary, and would request the Maryland State Police Aviation make the transport.

A landing zone was established nearby at the St. Mary’s County Airport.

It is unclear at this time if both injured patients were traveling on the motorcycle at the time of the crash, or if any of the patients came from the car.

Police from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office would put out the following alert soon after the crash:

“Wildewood Pkwy is temporarily closed at Redwood Lane due to a motor vehicle accident. Police / Fire / EMS are on scene.

Use alternative route and expect delays.”

A detour has been set up by police, redirecting traffic on Wildewood Blvd.

This is a developing story. We will continue to provide additional details as they are made available.

  1. Husband and wife both on the bike were injured by the car driver who failed to yield. The car driver is always on the phone. My money is on he was on his phone at the time of impact.

  2. This is my sister and her husband involved riding the motor cycle. They where almost home when they where struck. She has sustained a fractured hip and we are still unclear the full extent of his injuries. Our family is from Kansas so we are unable to be with her right now but his mom drove from Jacksonville Florida to be with them. Their five kids are being looked after by the military family. They are both active navy and are such loving people. I wish I could see my little sister but I know god has her in his hands along with my brother in law.

    1. I am so sorry to hear about this happening so many people do not pay attention while they’re driving it’s so scary. My prayers are with your family🙏🏽🙏🏽🌹

    2. Praying for their full recovery…I was rear-ended on my bike Saturday in Hollywood. Praying people please put their cell phones down while driving.

    1. Seems like you have alot to say behind an unpublished name. I do not know the person your speaking of, however unless you were parked in that car you have no idea what happened. That is the reason for an investigation. Doxing someone is never a smart thing to do.

  3. If only we had a true justice system so that the at fault driver would have to depend on someone else to drive him around after he does 10 years in jail!!!

  4. Speeding and drivers on their phones are way too common in Wildewood. It was just a matter of time before this happened. And it will happen again.

  6. My heart goes out to the couple with the 5 kids and their families. May God stand with the. And heal the parents so they can get home with their kids and families. And I would also like to thank them both for serving and keep all of us safe. God bless you.

  7. It’s crazy how people are quick to judge i pray for the people involed. Since no one was charged at the scene how can you say it’s the driver of the cars fault? Mr Dove is always on his phone and is a mad black man….. SMH He’s one of the nicest men i know a great husband and father just because he disciplined his kids it’s child abuse? Do you know what they were doing and why he’s not in jail? It’s crazy how many of my friends get dragged on here and are proven innocent one lost his job congrat’s with a lawsuit coming.

    1. Yup, this happened directly in front of me. I was on Hickory Nut Dr. at the stop sign. No one was speeding. The comment above by “Anonymous” “failed to yield” is FALSE. he was the second car in a long line. The 1st car made a right hand turn, this car was making a left hand turn. He had no choice, but to yield for the car in front of him, and because there was a car traveling in the opposite direction in front of the bike. From my perspective (my opinion yes) I think the car just didn’t see the bike coming
      from the opposite direction around the curved roadway. The bike saw cars yielding not knowing they were- due to the 1st car turning right-(the 2nd car turning left) the bike just saw traffic yielding and proceeded with what he most likely felt was the “right of way”. It was just an accident, nothing more.

  8. For the negative one I will pray for you You should be praying instead of being so judgmental anything can happen at any giving times and accident happen so be careful when judging others . Seem to me you have a little hate or jealousy toward him. But I pray that God will remove what ever envy you have in your heart .
