MECHANICSVILLE, Md. — We are receiving reports of a motor vehicle crash this evening that had reportedly left one person with serious injuries.
At approximately 7:33 p.m. on January 25, first responders were dispatched to the scene of Three Notch Road in the area of Friendship School Road.
Initial reports indicated that one person was trapped inside their vehicle after striking a tree off the road, leaving them unresponsive. Upon arrival, crews discovered a single patient who was not trapped and was not unconscious.
Soon after arriving and examining the patient, EMS crews would make a determination to launch a helicopter from the Maryland State Police Aviation to transport the patient to a nearby trauma center.
However, that helicopter would be cancelled soon after, as the patients injuries were downgraded to be considered minor. The patient would be transported by ground to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
The southbound lanes of Three Notch Road in the area of the crash will be shut down temporarily.
This is a developing story. We will continue to provide additional details as they come available.
