UPDATE: 2 People Airlifted After Crash in Davidsonville

A 11-year-old boy and 48-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries from the crash on Governor Bridge Road on Wednesday morning.

UPDATE (2:50 p.m. Thursday)—Two people suffered life-threatening injuries following a crash on Governor Bridge Road in Davidsonville on Wednesday morning. 

Capt. Mike Pfaltzgraff of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department said paramedics responded to a report of a crash 7:35 a.m. Wednesday at the 1400 block of Governor Bridge Road, and found a single car that had crashed into a tree. Pfaltzgraff said two people were trapped in the car and it took about 15 minutes to extricate them.

Anne Arundel County police said both occupants had potential life-threatening injuries and were transported by helicopter to Washington Hospital Center for treatment. As of Thursday, police said both were in critical but stable condition.

A police investigation "determined the vehicle was traveling east on Governor Bridge Road when the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway, began to rotate in a counterclockwise direction and slid sideways off the roadway, striking a fence and ultimately a tree," according to a press release. 

Police said speed may have contributed to this crash, and it is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol were factors. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or with additional information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-8610 or the Traffic Safety Section at 410-222-8573.
