On November 15, 2008 at approximately 12:30pm, United States Park Police officers responded to the Baltimore Washington Parkway south of Powdermill Road for the report of a serious personal injury crash.

Preliminary investigation revealed that two vehicles, a blue Chevrolet 4 door with Virginia registration and a black Chevrolet SUV with Maryland registration, were traveling northbound on the Parkway when they made contact. The black Chevrolet lost control after contact and drove into the center median causing it to flip and enter onto the southbound lanes of the Parkway. The black SUV collided with a maroon Ford 4 door which caused the Ford to drive onto the right shoulder and into the tree line where it came to rest against the trees. The SUV came to rest on its own hood in the right southbound lane.

The 2 occupants of the Ford were transported to a local hospital in serious but stable condition. The lone occupant of the SUV was airlifted by United States Park Police ‘Eagle’ helicopter to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information about this incident, please call the United States Park Police, Criminal Investigations Branch on (202) 610-8737.
