At 01:42 hours on May 7, 2017 Company's 1, 7, 19, 79, and the Medic Unit were dispatched to 43300 St. Andrews Church Road in the area of Fairgrounds Road for the motor vehicle accident reported serious. Initial reports indicated a single vehicle was involved with one patient possibly ejected. Squad 1 and Engine 1 made the response.
Units arrived to find a single vehicle that was ripped in half after leaving the roadway and striking a utility pole. The driver (who was the only occupant) was ejected. After further assessment, it was determined that the patient was deceased. Units remained on scene for a considerable amount of time to aid police as they began an accident reconstruction and investigation. Chief 1 held the command.
The officers and members of the Leonardtown Volunteer Fire Department would like to send our deepest condolences to those affected by this incident.
