Personal Injury Crash - Harwood
On January 2, 2017 at approximately 2:00 p.m., officers responded to a multiple vehicle crash with roll-over on Solomons Island Road at Mill Swamp Road in Harwood. Investigation showed that a Ford Explorer was traveling south on Solomons Island Road in the area of Mill Swamp Road when the driver attempted to pass other vehicles on the right. The driver lost control driving off the roadway into the grass, then back onto the roadway. The vehicle then crossed the center and struck a Mercedes Benz that was traveling northbound on Solomons Island Rd. The Explorer rolled over, trapping the driver.
The driver of the Explorer was transported by ground to Prince George’s Hospital Center with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The driver and front seat passenger of the Mercedes were transported by ground to Medstar Trauma with non-life threatening injuries. The juvenile (rear seat passenger) in the Mercedes was transported by ground to Children’s National Medical Center where he’s listed in stable condition.
The preliminary cause of the crash appears to be driving off roadway while passing another vehicle and excessive speed. The Traffic Safety Section is handing the investigation and any charges are pending review by the State’s Attorney.
