At approx 1:45pm station 16 was alerted to a motor vehicle crash with injuries
at the intersection of Naylor Mill Rd and the Rt.50 bypass.
One of the vehicles involved was a six or eight wheeled commercial "box truck" in which the truck had over-turned.
All lanes of traffic at both intersections of the Rt.50 bypass on Naylor Mill Rd. I do not know how many people were taken to the hospital nor do I have info on the injuries. I was, however, told by an official on the scene that "several" people were transported.
Fire officials cleared the scene at 2:45pm, but the road is still closed and will remain that way until an accident reconstruction is completed (Sheriff Mike Lewis is even there to assist with the investigation!). The investigation will take at least a few hours to complete.
In fact, they had to call the Maryland State Police reconstruction team from
Somerset Co. to come up and perform the task.
The public is asked to PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THAT AREA!!! No one will be allowed to pass through. NO EXCEPTIONS!
