Alcohol Suspected in Late Night Great Mills Collision

May 17, 2015

024_6312On Friday, May 15, 2015, at approximately 11:30 p.m., police, fire and rescue crews responded to a report of an accident at the intersection of Great Mills Road and Point Lookout Road, in Great Mills.
Crews arrived on scene to discover two vehicles involved in a t-bone style collision.

Two people were transported from the scene to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Two patients signed treatment refusals at the scene.

Investigation revealed the collision occurred as a burgundy Toyota Avalon was traveling south on Point Lookout Road when it attempted to make a left turn onto Great mills Road, failing to yield the right of way to a white Nissan Altima that was traveling north on Point Lookout Road. After being struck by the Altima, the Avalon continued on and struck a red SUV, causing minor damage to the SUV.

A Maryland State Trooper followed the ambulance transporting the male driver of the Toyota Avalon to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital so a blood kit could be performed to determine is the driver was impaired by alcohol.

    Silly drivers, everyone knows the first one to the intersection has the right of way, the straight thru traffic should have yielded to the turning vehicle as he was in a hurry! All intersections in the county should be traffic circles. They filter out the drunks, drug heads, slow traffic and save on the expense of installing lights that no one looks at anyway!

        Uhh, you don’t get out much after what…7 – 8pm? At the time the accident took place (11:30pm) that light is ‘flashing in both directions’.

      This isn’t England. I hate those circles! People just need to learn the ways of the road and not drive under the influence!

      Either you’re really ignorant or not very good at being humorous.

      How am I the only person to pick up on fred50’s sarcasm? Is everyone really that dense?

      Also to the “traffic circles at intersections? Wtf are you smoking?” person: Where exactly would you suggest a traffic circle be put if not at an intersection? Intersections are LITERALLY the sole use for a traffic circle.

        Dan doesn’t understand that sarcasm doesn’t always translate well in written form.

    The straight thru should have yielded to the turning vehicle? I take it that you just got your license. No wonder accidents happen. The straight thru vehicle has a yellow flashing light and the turning vehicle has a flashing red arrow. The turning vehicle with the red flashing light must yield to the straight thru vehicle with the yellow flashing light. If there were no traffic light, then yes the one who gets to the intersection first goes. Fred50, you should apply for some online courses on driving.

    No wonder insurance rates in this rural area are so high…bunch of idiots on the road!

    The lights really didn’t matter nor does who got to the intersection first. Turning traffic ALWAYS must yield to thru traffic.
