Mechanicsville, MD (May 1, 2022) – A crash involving a FedEx cargo van sent several people, including multiple children, to local hospitals with injuries on Saturday. Just before 8:30 p.m., on April 30, the police responded to a major wreck on Lockes Hills Road near Three Notch Road in Mechanicsville.
The police and 20 firefighters from Hollywood, Mechanicsville, and Hughesville responded to find an SUV and a FedEx cargo van blocking the intersection after a collision. The red SUV rolled over and landed on its roof.
Multiple people were trapped in their vehicles. Firefighters spent around 15-minutes extricating two people. Maryland State Police Helicopters were called to the site. A total of four pediatric patients were flown to Children’s hospitals.
Three other people were transported to local hospitals by ambulance for treatment.
