VIDEO: Two Injured After Serious Crash in Lexington Park During Rush Hour Traffic

July 4, 2019

On Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at approximately 3:20 p.m., police fire, and rescue personnel responded to Three Notch Road in the area of the Toyota of Southern Maryland in Lexington Park, for the motor vehicle accident reported serious with one person trapped.

Crews arrived on scene to find 4 vehicles in the roadway involving a Jeep, a Nissan pick-up truck, a Ford SUV and a tractor-trailer, with the operator of the Ford SUV trapped in the vehicle.

Firefighters extricated the single patient in approximately 8 minutes.

Two patients were taken to an area hospital with injuries. At least three patients signed care refusal forms.

The driver of the tractor-trailer reported traffic was not moving when he observed vehicles approaching him at a high rate of speed. The Nissan Titan truck reportedly did not strike the semi but was then rear-ended by the Jeep. The Ford Expedition then attempted to avoid striking the first crash and sideswiped the tractor-trailer.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriffs Office is investigating the crash and updates will be provided when they become available.

    Ah yes, the 3 notch 500. Yee Haw

  3. Who wants on July 4, 2019 at 10:43 am

    Who wants to bet that the SUV was flying down the turn lane and tried to dart back into traffic?

    I drive this corridor everyday and I am surprised this doesn’t happen every afternoon on Rt235.
    People drive 65 in a 45 just to race from red light to red light.
    Every time I look at other drivers they have their heads down in their smartphones.
    People use the right turning lanes as personal passing lanes, even cruising through the intersections when it is a right turn only.
    Cops do noting.
    I need to buy a tank.
    Hope all are OK ad they had more than the MD state minimum insurance.

      *Cops do nothing

      • Leroy on July 4, 2019 at 1:27 pm

        You can’t find a Cop let alone expect them to do anything. I bet the jeep and black truck were tailgating as well.

      • Firing Squad on July 4, 2019 at 1:56 pm

        Yes, there should be a thousand dollar fine for those people the cops “should” be citing for a host of infractions.

        Congratulation. The grammar police strikes again. Do you feel better now ?

        • YourMomZaenus on July 5, 2019 at 10:06 am

          He corrected himself you donk.

        • Can't fix stupid on July 5, 2019 at 2:40 pm

          You do realize, it was ‘Bill’…correcting himself. Reading is fundamental!

    • Leroy on July 4, 2019 at 1:33 pm

      It pretty much does happen daily. I never see a cop at that time of the day. I have heard it is unsafe for them to patrol during rush hour traffic which blows my mind.

  5. Francisco Franco on July 4, 2019 at 1:31 pm

    Typical drivers in Southern MD. They don’t care about anyone, including themselves. The police should implement the “Tase and Release” program. People get the punishment they deserve and cops avoid going to court! Bizp-Bizp!

    • Alternative punishment on July 5, 2019 at 2:41 pm

      I like your outta the box thinking!

    • Benito on July 5, 2019 at 5:17 pm

      That sounds like a wonderful idea and I support it wholeheartedly!

    Maybe SHA and/or the county road group should reassess the light at buck Hewitt. It forces us to make u-turns and race across 4- 5 lanes of traffic.

    • Anonymous on July 4, 2019 at 8:45 pm

      I agree not putting a full light there when the shopping center was built was crazy, forcing folks turning right to go left and U turn but this accident seems to be folks speeding.

      • Yes... it's that obvious on July 5, 2019 at 2:46 pm

        Just take Buck Hewitt to Chancellor’s Run…turn right, then left onto RT235. All risk avoided. Some of you have absolutely no idea idea how to mitigate risk do you. SMH

        • Anonymous on July 5, 2019 at 10:49 pm

          Why go out of the way leaving Navy Federal, again a full light is needed there but this is St Mary’s County

          • Sorry to inconvenience you... on July 8, 2019 at 11:25 am

            I go out of my way when my safety is in question.

          • Captain Obvious on July 8, 2019 at 2:06 pm

            It’s really pretty simple. Don’t allow U-Turns for those turn lanes on 235 south near NFCU between 3-6pm on weekdays. Then drivers simply have to drive an extra 500 yards south and make a safe U-Turn at a stoplight. Problem solved.

    • Cap'n Obvious on July 5, 2019 at 2:43 pm

      “…it forces…”? No. You CHOOSE to be stupid.

    • Wiggy on July 5, 2019 at 7:30 pm

      It’s a Shane you can’t go down the road another 200 feet to utilize a different and safer crossover. Stop being an indolent.

  7. i aint dumb on July 5, 2019 at 7:32 am

    Jeep and Titan was racing!!!! saw it all happen!

    • Anonymous on July 6, 2019 at 6:57 am

      Liar. The Titan was stopped, and the Jeep was turning onto 235 north from 235 south.

      • i aint dumb on July 8, 2019 at 8:24 am

        yo mama a liar..ofcoarse it was racing before it came to a stop idiot.

    • Also there on July 7, 2019 at 3:14 am

      Jeep was making a U-Turn. Expedition was speeding down the open lane. Expedition hit the jeep and spun it around into the Titan. Expedition lost control and hit tracker trailer after spinning the jeep around. Grill of jeep was in front of Expedition. Luckily no-one seriously injured. Three lanes standing still, one lane excessive speed.

      • CHEVY TRUCK on July 9, 2019 at 8:34 am

        no. the jeep and titan were friends and playing around.

  8. Ford on July 5, 2019 at 7:33 am

    well the bright side is the person can now have that new body style ford expedition that came out as a replacement!

  9. exrep on July 5, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    next to the Beltway Three Notch Rd is the second deadliest road in the State, if you want that to change you need the Governors office to get involved to force Cameron to take action.

    • Wiggy on July 6, 2019 at 6:40 pm

      Actually exrep, it’s well documented that Rte 210 is the most dangerous road in our area. You’re a dope that likes to bash Cameron for no sound reason. No Sherriff would post deputies on 235 during rush hour. You don’t see Chuck county doing it on 301 or 228 and until recently PG wasn’t doing it on 210.

      • exrep on July 8, 2019 at 9:34 pm

        what ever you say Piggly Wiggy

        • Wiggy on July 11, 2019 at 6:26 pm

          Wow! You’re clever!

    • Citizen on July 7, 2019 at 1:30 pm

      Most definitely this road is one of the most dangerous roads to travel in Lexington park and now I can see willlw be I feel on the chart so much traffic added to this small road and speed limit of 40 ignored and most are doing 50-55 and crossing lanes.St Mary’s work to get ur officiers out more to do their jobs and safe lives.Enforcement needs to stay firm and not one day and not the next

      • Bill on July 8, 2019 at 10:42 am

        Hard to take your point seriously when you dont even know the speed limit on this section of road is 45mph, not 40mph.

      • Where to start... on July 8, 2019 at 11:29 am

        “St Mary’s work to get ur officiers out more to do their jobs and safe lives”

        …and you need to work on your grammar and spelling!

    “It’s a shame” there is no light a very busy intersection

    • Cap'n Sarcasm on July 8, 2019 at 11:34 am

      Yes…’Cause what Rt235 needs is more traffic lights, not better drivers!

  11. The REAL Truth on July 6, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    The only person who can put a stop to this madness is Cameron and he apparently refuses to conduct any serious traffic enforcement to resolve the problem. He wants red light cameras everywhere but these only increase revenue… not safety. Keep this in mind when voting time comes around. Remember.. just because he is the Sheriff now doesn’t mean you HAVE TO vote for him again.

    • And...? on July 8, 2019 at 8:19 am

      I will NEVER understand the argument of “it only increases revenue”. SO? Whats wrong with that? I dont go through red lights. I dont drive 70 in a 40. So I have no concern of cameras popping me for tickets. If it increases revenue, even better. So you dont want to increase revenue? And maybe, just maybe people will begin to drive better, if for no reason than to save some money from their $25 tickets

    • Amish on July 9, 2019 at 8:37 am

      accidents gonna happen regardless its life we really arent meant to drive cares so stuff happen get over not that serious humans are dumb so stuff happens.

    I live right across cvs the police could sit in our drive way and have a feild day .

  13. YU Tolking on July 8, 2019 at 7:06 am

    Good lord- You HAVE GOT to be kidding me !! Are you really that ignorant? Lots of roads in MD, I’m sure 235 IS NOT one of the deadliest. Little place, little mind…

    • Wiggy on July 11, 2019 at 6:28 pm

      That’s exrep for ya. Small mind.

    “The driver of the tractor-trailer reported traffic was not moving when he observed vehicles approaching him at a high rate of speed.’

    If that was the case then the Jeep, Nissan pick-up truck, and Ford SUV were all driving in the right turn only lane. Charge all three with reckless driving.

    • i aint dumb on July 9, 2019 at 8:35 am

      THEY WEE RACING!! i seen it! people dont believe me

  15. I Hate JEEPS! on July 8, 2019 at 8:26 am

    it was the JEEPS fault!!!!!

    • Anonymous on July 9, 2019 at 5:34 pm

      Nope, it was the Ford trucks fault for using the right turning lane into their own “fast track” to get to the next red light asap.

      • i hate JEEPS! on July 11, 2019 at 7:32 am

        dont tell me nope..YES! it was the jeep fault the ford truck driver was trying to avoid the jeep idiot. i was there you was not so dont write me.
