HANOVER, Md. — A 54-year-old man was seriously injured following a car crash on Route 100, then moments later he was in another crash while being transported by ambulance.
Fire officials say crews responded to the area of Route 100 Eastbound between New Ridge Road and Harmans Road for the report of an accident with a vehicle off the roadway on Friday morning. At the scene, crews found a pick up truck in the woods with the 54-year-old man trapped inside.
They say crews removed the man from the truck before medics arrived to transport him to a hospital. The man reportedly suffered injuries that were serious but not life-threatening. A second person in another car was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center with minor injuries.
While medics were transporting him to Shock Trauma, the unit was involved in a car accident on Route 295 north of Route 100. Another medical unit was called to the scene to take him to the hospital.
Officials say the three firefighters on the medic unit were not injured as a result of the crash. The driver of the second vehicle involved was taken to Saint Agnes Hospital with minor injuries.
