Destructive and Fatal Accident on I-95 S
In the 6 o’clock hour this morning, Branchville Engine 811 and Paramedic Ambulance 811 were dispatched with units from Stations 814, 841 and 715 to I-95 southbound at Powder Mill Road for a report of a personal injury accident with one vehicle overturned. E811 and PA811 arrived on scene to find a single vehicle accident involving a white 4-dr sedan that had, for reason/reasons unknown at this time, left the roadway of I-95 south and struck a clump of pine trees.
The force of the impact disintegrated the vehicle into three sections. Fire personnel made an extensive search of the area using lights and thermal imaging cameras and determined there had been only one occupant. That person was ejected from the wreckage at impact and pronounced deceased at the scene.
After the search was concluded units returned service with E811 and PA811 clearing after an hour on scene with Maryland State Highway Administration taking over barrier protection during the Maryland State Police investigation.
