Davidsonville Crash Injures, Sends Three Teens to Area Trauma Hospitals
An early Saturday morning car crash in Davidsonville sent three teenagers to area trauma hospitals, fire department officials say.
Shortly after 3 am on Saturday, January 18, firefighters responded to a motor vehicle collision with a reported occupant trapped in the 3500 block of Riva Road. Firefighters located a single-car accident where the car left the roadway and struck a tree.
The 16-year-old male driver was trapped in the vehicle for about 30 minutes until firefighters extricated him. Paramedics transported him and a 16-year-old female passenger to two waiting Maryland State Police helicopters at the Davidsonville Elementary School.
They were both flown to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center with serious, but not believed life-threatening injuries. Paramedics also transported an 18-year-old male to the trauma center at UM Prince George’s Hospital Center with injuries that were serious but not believed life-threatening.
A 19-year-old female patient also sustained minor injuries but declined transport to the hospital.
