CHURCH HILL — Two driv­ers were in­jured Tues­day af­ter­noon, Nov. 27 in a crash on state Route 213.

Church Hill and Chestertown vol­un­teer fire com­pa­nies re­sponded shortly be­fore 3 p.m. to a mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion with en­trap­ment on Route 213 in front of the Ram­sey GMC deal­er­ship.

Units ar­rived to find two ve­hi­cles in­volved in a rearend type col­li­sion. Dur­ing the col­li­sion, the ve­hi­cle struck from be­hind ro­tated into a se­condary col­li­sion with the im­pact­ing ve­hi­cle. Af­ter sus­tain­ing se­vere dam­age, the im­pact­ing ve­hi­cle trav­eled off the right side of the road and got tan­gled up in the guardrail, as in­di­cated by re­ports from the Chestertown Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany.

The driver of the rearended ve­hi­cle was able to get out of the ve­hi­cle. The driver of the other ve­hi­cle was pinned within the ve­hi­cle. Crews from Church Hill and Chestertown vol­un­teer fire com­pa­nies worked to­gether to re­move the driver. Us­ing hy­draulic res­cue tools, the driver’s door was removed, a re­lief cut placed in the floor and a dash roll ex­e­cuted. The pa­tient was then removed from the ve­hi­cle to a wait­ing am­bu­lance.

The pa­tient was flown by Mary­land State Po­lice Avi­a­tion to the Univer­sity of Mary­land Shock Trauma Cen­ter in Bal­ti­more. The driver of rear-ended ve­hi­cle was taken to the Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Med­i­cal Cen­ter at Chestertown for eval­u­a­tion.

Route 213 was briefly closed as a re­sult of the crash.
