Seven reported injured in 2-vehicle crash at Price Station intersection

Seven people were reported injured in a two-vehicle crash at U.S. Route 301 and Price Station Road on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 4.

CHURCH HILL — Church Hill Volunteer Fire Department responded to a two-car crash at Route 301 south and Price Station Road around 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4, in which seven people were reported injured.

The Fire Chief Tyler Williams in his vehicle and a crew on Engine 55 were on their way to a public assistance call when the crash happened and had crossed the intersection just minutes prior. They returned to the intersection and found there were seven patients, five of whom were children.

The chief declared a mass casualty incident with the Maryland Joint Operations Center, which can open up state resources if needed and prepares hospitals for an influx of patients, according to the fire department.

Maryland State Police MedEvac helicopters, Troopers 1 and 6, responded along with Queen Anne’s County Paramedic 500 and Goodwill Volunteer Fire Company Paramedic 4.

One adult and three of the children were flown out to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for treatment. Three additional patients were taken by ambulance to a local facility.

Maryland State Police Sgt. Brian Curley said none of the injuries was life threatening. He was unable to provide further information because the report hadn’t been completed yet.

About two hours later, the fire department responded to another crash at the same intersection. This time all the occupants involved refused medical treatment.
