Friday, August 28, 2020
On Monday, August 10, 2020 the Chestertown VFC, along with other mutual aid companies, was dispatched as automatic mutual aid to the Rock Hall VFC for the Motor Vehicle Crash with Entrapment at McClean’s Corner, Rock Hall Road (Maryland 20) & Tolchester Beach Road (Maryland 21). The actual location was approximately one-half mile further south on Rock Hall Road (Maryland 20) in that section of roadway known locally as “The Double Woods”.
Units arrived to find a single vehicle collision vs. a utility pole. The vehicle was overturned with a patient trapped in their seatbelt. The first arriving was a Utility unit from the Kent & Queen Annes Rescue Squad which happened to be nearby on unrelated business.
Personnel on the utility unit, along with a Chestertown VFC firefighter that came on the crash just after it happened, were able to cut the seatbelt and assist the patient out of the vehicle. The patient was evaluated by EMS and transported by ambulance to the University of Maryland, Shore Medical Center at Chestertown for evaluation.
Chestertown VFC personnel cleared the vehicle for hazards and turned the crash scene over to law enforcement for the investigation.
There were no injuries to emergency personnel. Altogether, we operated at this incident for less than thirty (30) minutes.
