CALLAWAY, Md. (Sept. 11, 2013)—A serious crash in Prince Frederick on Monday afternoon sent three people to PG Shock Trauma in serious condition. There were no fatalities. The driver of one vehicle lost control and subsequently involved two other vehicles in the crash.
At 2:02 pm, Troopers from the Prince Frederick Barrack were called to the collision on Route 4, south of Westlake Blvd in Prince Frederick. Troopers determined that vehicle #1 (2000 Ford F-150 truck) operated by Rebecca Murphy, 27 of Lusby, was traveling south on Route 4, south of Westlake Blvd. Murphy swerved from the fast lane to the slow lane and then back to the fast lane, subsequently losing control and crossing the center median and into the northbound Rt. 4 traffic.
Vehicle #2 (2000 Jeep Cherokee) operated by Casey Jones, 22 of Waldorf, was traveling north on Route 4 in the fast lane and was struck head on by vehicle #1.
As vehicle #1 crossed through the median strip, it struck a traffic sign which subsequently went airborne. The sign struck vehicle #3 (2009 BMW) operated by Stephanie Wright, 56 of Lusby.
Murphy, Jones, and a passenger in vehicle #1 (Roger Murphy, 34 of Lusby) were all flown to PG Shock Trauma.
The investigation into the collision is ongoing and is being conducted by Trooper First Class S. Lewis of the Prince Frederick Barrack.
