Multi-Vehicle Crash in Worcester County


BERLIN, Md.- The Worcester County Sheriff's Office says inclement weather and poor visibility contributed to a Wednesday afternoon crash that involved several vehicles.

The crash occurred shortly after noon on Route 113 and Ironshire Station Road near Berlin.  Police say an investigation revealed that a Honda had slowed due to the weather conditions and poor visibility. A van slowed behind the Honda. A tractor-trailer then struck the Honda and the van. Both the drivers of the Honda and the van were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the truck was not injured. The tractor-trailer jack knifed and blocked the south bound roadway. A vehicle behind that truck slowed and was rear-ended by another. That impact pushed the vehicle into a third vehicle. One of those drivers was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Another tractor-trailer slowed to a stop to avoid the second crash and was rear-ended by a SUV. That SUV was then rear-ended by a pickup truck.

Police say the drivers of the SUV and the pickup truck were transported to the hospital for serious but not life threatening injuries.  A total of nine vehicles were involved in three separate crashes. 

Route 113 was closed for about two hours while the accident scene was cleared.
