INDIAN HEAD, Md. – On December 16, 2020 at approximately 2:30 a.m., police, fire and rescue personnel responded to a serious motor vehicle accident on Smallwood Church Road for a collision with entrapment.

Crews arrived to find a single vehicle overturned with a single occupant trapped in the vehicle. A utility pole was broken in front of the vehicle with wires hanging on the vehicle.

Due to a delay in the response from the power company, crews worked in a tight area around the fallen wires to stabilize the vehicle and extricate the patient.

The patient was removed and transferred to EMS care. MEDEVAC requested, Rescue Squad 7 (PHVFD) handled the landing zone for Trooper 2.
