Posted: Updated:

PARSONSBURG, Md. - A Maryland man is facing DUI and related charges following a three-vehicle crash Monday evening that shut down part of Route 50 in Wicomico County for several hours, according to police.

The Maryland State Police said the crash happened just after 6:15 Monday evening in the westbound lanes of Route 50 prior to Walston Switch Road in Parsonsburg. 

According to police, 22-year-old Eric Gibson, Jr., of Glen Burnie, Md., was speeding down Route 50 in a 2014 Nissan Versa when he attempted to pass between two other vehicles, then hit them. Police said Gibson then lost control and went off the right hand side of the road, flipping up onto its roof and hitting a tree. Gibson was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by the Parsonsburg Fire Department, police said.

Gibson was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for multiple injuries. No one else was injured, police said.

Through an investigation, police determined alcohol and speed were the causes of the crash. Gibson was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and other charges, police said.
