Three-car wreck sends drivers, passengers to hospital
— 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.
Calvin Bonenberger, Rising Sun town administrator, witnessed the crash,
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.
