Just before 4:00 PM on August 30th Units from Winfield and Mount Airy were alerted for a Vehicle Collision with Rescue in the 4700 Block of Route 27. Paramedic 149 and Duty 14 (Chief Davis) arrived and found a single vehicle into a tree. Duty 14 established the Route 27 Command and advised he had 1 patient still heavily pinned in the vehicle and multiple other patients. Crews immediately went to work assessing the patients involved. Aviation was then requested for 2 pediatric patients which brought Maryland State Police Trooper 2 to assist. The driver who was trapped in the vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene. The 2 pediatric patients were flown to Johns Hopkins by Trooper 2. Maryland State Police is currently investigating the incident. Winfield VFD gives our deepest sympathies to the families of the patients involved in the incident.
