ELKTON — Maryland State Police are investigating a crash that sent one person to the hospital with life-threatening injuries on Sunday afternoon.
Around 12:30 p.m., a silver Nissan Altima was traveling northbound on Elkton Road when it crashed into a silver Chevrolet Malibu at the intersection of Airport Road — an access road for the nearby W.L. Gore facilities. The front-seat passenger of the Chevrolet suffered serious injuries, and that person was transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital in Delaware.
The driver of the Chevrolet, the driver of the Nissan, and the three passengers in the Nissan all suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
As of Tuesday night, MSP officials had not released the names, ages, and towns of residency of those involved in the crash. Nor had they updated the medical conditions of those injured.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this crash, according to MSP.
The Maryland State Highway Administration and MSP closed the right lane of Elkton Road after the crash. MSP crash reconstruction responded to the scene to assume the investigation.
MSP are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact the Maryland State Police North East Barrack at 410-996-7800. When calling in a tip, MSP ask witnesses to use the case number of #19MSP030526.
