One dead, one injured after Route 313 crash
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.
