By Alpert Schreyer on April 18, 2017

fire truckOn the morning of Mar. 18, crews responded to a call that a fire department tanker truck had overturned on Robinson Road in Huntingtown, Maryland.

What happened

According to Thebaynet.com, the tanker truck had been on its way to an emergency call when the incident occurred. The truck, known as Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department Tanker 5, was responding to a house fire at 3725 Robinson Road in Huntingtown.

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and found two crew members inside the vehicle: Lieutenant Marty Sealey, who was driving the truck, and Lieutenant John Faulkner Jr.

Lt. Sealey was transported from the scene by Maryland State Police helicopter to MedStar Hospital in Washington, D.C. where he was listed in critical but stable condition. Lt. Faulkner, who was initially transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital, was later transferred to MedStar where he was also listed in critical but stable condition.

According to Thebaynet.com, the accident at least partially was the result of a tire blowout and tread separation that occurred as the truck rounded a curve on Robinson Road. At the time of the accident, the tanker was carrying its full capacity of 3000 gallons of water. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
