Overturned 18-Wheeler Traps Driver Underneath on Wednesday Afternoon

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services (MCFRS) we’re called to the scene of a collision that led to an overturned 18-wheeler that trapped the driver under the vehicle, and live power lines in the area of White Acres Farm on Darnestown Rd. near Dickerson Rd. (on the backside of Woodside Equestrian Center) in the Dickerson/Poolesville area at approximately 2:15pm on Wednesday Afternoon, according to MCFRS Chief Spokesperson Pete Piringer.

Upon arrival, MCFRS crews found the overturned grain hauler well off of the hard surface road with the driver requiring extrication. Utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) assisted in getting to the site of the overturned vehicle, and crews were able to remove the driver for evaluation. The driver was then transported to a local trauma center for Pri2 trauma (serious, but non-life-threatening injuries).

As of now, there is no word on how the crash occurred.
