Garrett County Accident Sends Three Kids to Hospital

By Alpert Schreyer on July 5, 2012

Three young people were taken to Grantsville-area hospitals with serious injuries after the minivan they were riding in crashed with a pickup truck on Route 495, according to an article in the Times-News.

The injured passengers were among six people riding in a minivan driven by a 35-year-old Accident, MD resident. They included a 10-year-old girl, who was taken to the hospital via helicopter with life-threatening injuries, and two other young people, who were transported by ambulance to a medical center in West Virginia for treatment. No word has yet been released on their conditions or whether they are expected to recover from their injuries.

According to investigators, the accident occurred when the minivan slowed down to make a left turn onto U.S. Route 40 and was struck from behind by a pickup truck, which did not slow down to accommodate the turning minivan. The pickup truck was driven by a Friendsville resident, but there was no report as to whether he was injured or how badly.

Rear-end accidents pose special risks that other types of accidents do not. For instance, a rear-end accident is far more likely to cause serious traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, including whiplash which is an injury to the muscles, nerves, and connective tissues of the neck and upper back that can cause long-term pain and disabilities.
