Dump Truck, Tractor Trailer Collide, Leaving Three Injured

By Alpert Schreyer on August 4, 2016

Dump truckWednesday morning in Frederick County a tractor trailer collided with a dump truck, leaving the drivers of both vehicles with serious injuries and a nurse injured, as well.
The accident happened around 4:50am on westbound I-70, when police say the tractor trailer rear-ended a dump truck at the 56-mile marker, causing the tractor trailer to jackknife and the dump truck to flip over.
The collision also caused hazardous conditions with debris all over the road, as the dump truck was carrying concrete and the tractor trailer was carrying asphalt.  I-70 was shut down in both directions for a while near Exit 56 and traffic was redirected to Route 144 during the cleanup.  Both drivers were seriously injured and flown to Baltimore Shock Trauma.  The driver of the tractor trailer was identified as Douglas Sexton, Jr., of Sparrows Point and the dump truck driver was Charles Williams of Baltimore.
A nurse who stopped to help was also flown to Baltimore Shock Trauma after falling over 100 feet into the Monocacy River.  Authorities say Angela Weir, 47, a nurse at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, jumped over a jersey wall thinking there was a median on the other side and wound up plunging into the water.  She was treated and discharged, and the accident is under investigation.
