HUNTINGTOWN, Md. — Crews from the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department recently took a slight detour to respond to a serious crash in their jurisdiction.

On January 27, shortly after completing a training drill to practice ice rescues, volunteers were dispatched to the scene of a crash in the area of Route 4 and Greenhouse Place. While on the way, the assignment was upgraded due to the nature of the crash being a rollover with entrapment.

Upon arrival, crews found the pickup truck with a single occupant inside. That occupant was described by first responders as semi-conscious following the crash, and still trapped.

Crews went to work to to free the patient from the truck and managed to do so successfully soon after.

After being extricated, the patient was flown to a nearby trauma center by Maryland State Police Aviation Trooper 2 for additional treatment.

  1. I’m sorry This happens it shouldn’t matters you could be young or old . we all have a right to live in a peaceful life. When you do drive in weather conditions please be very cautious of your surroundings. Not only of ourselves but others as well. May God be with that t person my prayers are with him/her

  2. I think big trucks & SUV’s give people a false sense of security. It doesn’t matter what you’re driving if the roads are icy enough, everything will flip over when u add any speed. There should be a mandatory statewide emergency/snow speed limit (determined by the MVA) for icy roads. ALL lives matter.

    Rene: Get some bleach and go wash the liberal fascism out of your brain. “There should be a mandatory statewide emergency/snow speed limit (determined by the MVA) for icy roads. ALL lives matter”???
