1/24/2008 – Hebron crews were alerted for an accident with injuries during the snowfall on Old Railroad Rd just off of Rt.50 west bound. Emergency Management (EM-4) arrived on scene first and advised Wicomico Central to upgrade to a rescue assignment for Ford Expedition on its side in a ditch with the driver still inside.
