A two-car collision occurred on Bradley Boulevard and Arlington Road at approximately 6:15pm this evening, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue (MCFRS) PIO Pete Piringer.

A pedestrian crossing sign was damaged (severed at the base), which led to live wires on the road following the collision.

MCFRS extricated adult patients from the vehicle(s), but it is unclear how many were trapped following the crash.

Two adults were transported to the hospital with Priority 2 Trauma (patient is stable, but is felt to have a condition that may become unstable or life-threatening if nothing evaluated and treated rapidly) and two other adults were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash initially closed some lanes and traffic lights were on flash until recently.


A truck was driven into 7-Eleven at the Ritchie Center in Rockville earlier this evening.

According to Rockville Police, the driver drove into the outside wall of the 7-Eleven at 785 Rockville Pike.

The driver was evaluated by Montgomery County Fire and Rescue and is not injured. The building can’t say the same, as it is now dealing with a large crack going down one of its walls so a structural crew was called to inspect the building.

Beyond MoCo: Carroll, Frederick, and Montgomery Counties Respond to Tanker Crash on I-70

Units are currently on scene of a (fuel) tanker truck crash involving a large fire on I-70 in Mount Airy near the Carroll and Frederick County border.

Units were dispatched shortly after 3PM Tuesday. Montgomery County units on scene include Damascus Volunteer Fire Department Tanker 713 and Laytonsville VFD Chief 717. Carroll, Frederick, and Howard Counties also have units on scene.

Firefighters are using a large amount of foam and water to extinguish the fire. As the Interstate has no hydrants, firefighters have established a relay of tankers to bring water and foam to the scene.

Information about injuries could not be immediately confirmed. Maryland State Police Frederick Barrack and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Troopers are on scene.

Around 11AM Monday morning, a Maryland State Highway Administration Contractor was conducting a mobile sweeping operation on Northbound I-270 near West Diamond Avenue (MD-117) in Gaithersburg. As the sweeping convoy was headed northbound, a passing SUV crashed into one of the Contractor’s trucks.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported in this crash. That was, at least in part, due to the fact that the truck that was hit was equipped with a Scorpion Truck Mounted Attenuator. These attenuators absorb the impact of striking vehicles, protecting workers ahead while also protecting the occupants of the vehicle by bringing it to a slower stop than if it just ran right into the back of the actual truck.

The Maryland State Rockville Barrack handled the crash report for this incident. Information about any citations remained unknown Tuesday morning.

In Rockville on Wednesday near the intersection of Wade Avenue and Edmonston Drive, an SUV crashed into a parked vehicle and flipped over onto its roof. The driver of the overturned SUV was briefly trapped, however she was uninjured after she was assisted out of the vehicle.

The Rockville City Police Department’s Public Information Division said that the woman praised her car and seat belt as the reasons why she was completely uninjured.

According to the Virginia-based Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), good vehicle roof strength and side curtain airbags with rollover sensors are especially critical components of occupant protection during rollover crashes. Roof strength ratings and other crash tests can be viewed on the IIHS’s website.

According to the Maryland Highway Safety Office, in Maryland alone, crashes kill more than 120 unbelted drivers and passengers every year. People involved in crashes without seat belts are 67% more likely to sustain moderate to fatal injuries.
