Three ve­hi­cles col­lide in White Plains Wed­nes­day

A New­burg man was evac­u­ated via med­i­cal he­li­copter fol­low­ing a three-car ac­ci­dent in White Plains Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, po­lice say.

The 82-year-old man from New­burg was trans­port- ed by he­li­copter with non-life threat­en­ing in­juries, while six oth­ers, in­clud­ing two small chil­dren, were taken by am­bu­lance to a nearby hos­pi­tal, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

At ap­prox­i­mately 1:50 p.m., three ve­hi­cles — a Ford Ex­pe­di­tion, a Chevro­let Sil­ver­ado and an In­finiti sedan — were in­volved in an ac­ci­dent on U.S. 301 in White Plains near the in­ter­sec­tion with De­marr Road and Re­gency Place. Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice units ar­rived on the scene first, but later turned the in­ves­ti­ga­tion over to Mary­land State Po­lice troop­ers.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that the Sil­ver­ado was cross­ing the south­bound lanes of U.S. 301, as it turned onto Re­gency Place from the north­bound lanes, when it was struck by the Ex­pe­di­tion, po­lice say. The im­pact caused the Sil­ver­ado to strike the In­finiti sedan which had been sta­tion­ary at the traf­fic light on Re­gency Place. The Ex­pe­di­tion and sedan both suf­fered front end dam­age. The Sil­ver­ado showed im­pact on the right side and left front cor­ner.

The 82-year-old man was said to be a pas­sen­ger of the Sil­ver­ado, and the two small chil­dren were seated in the back­seat of the Ex­pe­di­tion.

It has not yet been de­ter­mined which driver failed to obey the traf­fic light. Mary­land State Po­lice Tfc. Robin­son is con­tin­u­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Any wit- nesses are asked to con­tact the Mary­land State Po­lice La Plata Bar­rack at 301-392-1200.
