2/23/2013 – At 1:04 PM Caroline dispatched Station 300 (Denton) and Station 200 (Preston – Dive Team) for an MVC with a vehicle overturned in the water in front of 24242 Shore Highway. Units arrived on location to find one vehicle overturned in approximately 4 feet of water and both occupants had be extricated by an off duty police officer. Paramedic 391 and Paramedic 392 each transported one Priority 1 patient to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Aviation was down due to the inclement weather. The passenger of the vehicle later succumbed to her injuries.
The cause of the accident is under investigation by the Maryland State Police.
On behalf of everyone at Delmarva Fire Photography, I would like to offer our condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy.
