EASTON — A sedan crashed into a guardrail Monday morning, spinning the car out of control and rolling over on U.S. Route 50 East, near Woodlawn Memorial Park at 11365 Ocean Gateway.
A good samaritan who saw the crash called 911 shortly after the accident, sometime around 10:30 a.m., after two victims pulled themselves out of the crashed car. Both were taken to the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center.
Easton Volunteer Fire Department and Cordova Volunteer Fire Company responded to the scene around 10:41 a.m. and Talbot County Emergency Medical Services transported both victims to the hospital via ambulance around 10:57 a.m.
Tim Faudree, of Grasonville, was driving with his wife on the opposite side of the highway when he saw the crash.
“It looks like he hit a guardrail, and I saw (it) roll,” he said. “When it came to a stop, they both got out, and (the man) laid himself on the ground.”
Faudree said both victims, a man and a woman, were injured, but the man “showed he was in pain, but he didn’t say anything the whole time.”
The sedan’s airbags were blown up, spreading out through the vehicle’s open doors. The front hood of the car was crumpled and window glass was nearly shattered.
Fire department personnel were on the scene, cleaning up debris from the crash. Maryland State Police and Talbot County Sheriff’s Office also responded.
EVFD Fire Chief C.R. Chance said in a phone call at 12:45 p.m. that fire department personnel “turned it over to the state police,” who are still investigating the accident.
