Baltimore-Washington Parkway

National Park News

In the early morning hours of October 14th, Park Police officers were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash in the area of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway north of Route 32.  Officers Roy Williams and Keith Johnson were already in the area handling a previous collision when the call came in. Williams was the first officer on scene, arriving before either fire or medical personnel. The crash involved a vehicle that had been traveling south on the parkway when the operator lost control. It crossed the center median, turned onto its roof as it crossed the northbound lanes of the parkway, then came to rest on the driver’s side on the east shoulder of the parkway. The driver and sole occupant was ejected and partially trapped underneath the vehicle.   Anne Arundel police, fire and EMS units also responded. Williams, Anne Arundel police and emergency personnel, and concerned citizens worked together to tilt the vehicle off of the injured 32-year-old woman, freeing her so that assessment and treatment could begin.  Johnson then arrived, made the scene safe, and secured and provided information to responding units. The woman was taken to Baltimore Shock Trauma Hospital, where she is currently be treated for internal injuries, head trauma, and a broken arm. Due to the seriousness of the injuries, members of the Criminal Investigation Branch and crash reconstruction units investigated and documented the scene.
