A Hyundai coupe left the roadway in icy conditions and skidded through brush and trees before landing in the marsh 300ft from the Nanticoke River. After extrication, medic crews worked on a single patient for an extended time to stabilize for transport, it was decided that A-81 would transport by ground to PRMC. Trooper 2 was returned to service. (Developing Story, subject to change)
