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.
