8/30/16 – Shortly before noon, Dorchester Central dispatched units to a serious MVC with rollover on Route 50 in the area of Maiden Forest Road. Units arrived on location to find one tractor-trailer overturned with a utility pole and wires down. The driver was the lone occupant and he was transported to PRMC in serious condition. West bound Route 50 remained closed until early evening while crews from Choptank Electric replaced the pole and crews from Jess Jr.’s and Sons cleaned up the wreckage.
The cause of the accident is being investigated by the Maryland State Police.
