At 2:39 p.m. Oct. 19, Waldorf Volunteer Firefighters responded to a crash with a vehicle overturned at Marshall Corner Road and Tulip Drive.
When firefighters arrived they found the vehicle right-side-up and the child escaped from the vehicle.
There was one patient in the car at the time of arrival, a 27-year old female complaining of pain in her ribs and legs and head, reports Firefighter Tim Ramsey.
The vehicle had apparently rolled over at least one time and there was heavy trauma to the car on the driver’s side.
It took firefighters 20 minutes to remove the driver’s door, the rear door on the driver’s side, and the “B post”, to free the driver.
Air bags had deployed and patient was using a seatbelt.
Fire command requested Maryland State Police Trooper 2 helicopter, which and both patients flew out to MedStar and Children’s Hospital in Washington. The child was flown due to the mechanism of the crash.
