— A three-car col­li­sion at the in­ter­sec­tion of Route 272 and Route 273 sent sev­eral peo­ple to area hos­pi­tals with non-lifethreat­en­ing in­juries, the third wreck at that in­ter­sec­tion in as many days.

Mary­land State Po­lice Tfc. Justin Rann said driv­ers and pas­sen­gers were taken to Chris­tiana Hospi­tal as a pre­cau­tion af­ter be­ing ex­tri­cated from the cars.

“There were no se­ri­ous in­juries,” Rann said.

which hap­pened around noon Thurs­day. A trained first re­spon­der him­self, Bo­nen­berger told Rann he had never seen a car go air­borne be­fore now.

“The first car T-boned the sec­ond and it flipped up ... and landed on the third car,” he said.

Bo­nen­berger crawled into that sec­ond ve­hi­cle and kept a woman calm while vol­un­teers from the Com­mu­nity Fire Com­pany of Ris­ing Sun worked to free her.

“She was be­ing held up by the seat­belt. I helped hold her up­right,” he said, ad­ding he found a roll of pa­per tow­els and used it to cush­ion the woman’s head.
