Record Observer - - Front Page -

IN­GLE­SIDE — A Fri­day af­ter­noon mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion left one dead and one in­jured after a trac­tor-trailer and pas­sen­ger car col­lided in In­gle­side, a Mary­land State Po­lice re­port stated.

A po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­ter­mined a 2009 Pon­tiac G5 driven by Rhorder Golds­bor­ough Jr. of Rock Hall at­tempted to turn onto Roberts Sta­tion Road when it was hit by a 2013 West­ern Star trac­tor­trailer driven by Ge­orge Peugh Jr. or Pre­ston, po­lice said.

The Pon­tiac, trav­el­ing north on Mary­land Route 313, was struck on the pas­sen­ger side as it at­tempted to cross south­bound traf­fic, po­lice said.

The pas­sen­ger of the ve­hi­cle, Kava Golds­bor­ough of Rock Hall, died of in­juries from the col­li­sion, po­lice said. Rhorder Golds­bor­ough Jr., who was also se­ri­ously in­jured, po­lice said, was flown by Mary­land State Po­lice Avi­a­tion Trooper 6 to the R. Adams Crowley Shock Trauma Cen­ter in Bal­ti­more.

Golds­bor­ough Jr. has been dis­charged from Shock Trauma, Karen Warmkessel from the Univer­sity of Mar yland Med­i­cal Cen­ter said.

Peugh was not in­jured and did not re­quire med­i­cal at­ten­tion from Queen Anne’s County Depart­ment of Emer­gency Ser­vices.

Brett Van­zant, pres­i­dent of Church Hill Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany, said the unit was sent to the scene at 3:10 p.m.

He said the roads were closed and de­tours were in ef­fect for more

than eight hours, par­tially be­cause Mary­land State Po­lice troop­ers were con­tin­u­ing its in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Van­zant said the trac­tor-trailer went into a ditch after the col­li­sion and be­gan leak­ing en­gine flu­ids.

The Church Hill Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany Haz­ardous Ma­te­rial Spill trailer was dis­patched to aid in clean­ing the spill, Van­zant said.

Mary­land Depart­ment of the En­vi­ron­ment also ar­rived on the scene and took over the sit­u­a­tion.

A heavy-duty wrecker, Van­zant said, was used to get the trac­tor-trailer out of the drainage ditch. Mary­land State Po­lice had the trac­tor trailer towed to an­other lo­ca­tion to con­tinue its in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Van­zant said.

Along with Church Hill, the Sudlersville Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany, Queen Anne’s County Emer­gency Ser­vices, Mary­land State Po­lice, Mary­land Depart­ment of the En­vi­ron­ment and the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to the crash, Van­zant said.
