QUEENSTOWN, Md. —Five vehicles collided on U.S. Route 50 on the Eastern Shore Thursday evening, injuring at least three people.
State troopers shut down Route 50 just before the Route 50/301 split in Queenstown, Queen Anne's County shortly after 2:30 p.m.
State police said a sport utility vehicle was traveling the wrong way in the eastbound lanes when it collided with a tractor-trailer head-on. The SUV then crossed all eastbound lanes and hit two other vehicles, one of which crossed into the median and struck a pickup truck.
Three people were flown to Shock Trauma: Mary Kathryn Greer, 77, of Queenstown, Herbert Tidus Jones, 56, and Gale Patrice Jones, 54, both of Princess Anne. Police identified Greer as the driver of the SUV, and the Joneses as driver and passenger of a vehicle struck by the SUV.
