BERLIN, Md.-  An ATV driver suffered minor injuries after a crop duster pilot attempted to land at an airfield in Worcester County on Sunday morning, Maryland State Police said.

Drew Eckman, 23, of Berlin was taken by the pilot of the crop duster to Atlantic General Hospital, police said.

The pilot of the plane has been identified as Christopher Bunting, 25, of Berlin. He was not injured in the accident, police said.

Shortly before 11 a.m., police responded to the hospital after reports that Eckman was struck by an aircraft at Bunting's Airfield in Berlin. 

Eckman told police he had just completed an inspection of one of the crop dusting planes at the airfield and was driving an ATV on the runway. He noticed the plane and had attempted to get out of the way, but he was struck and thrown from it, police said.

Bunting got out of the plane and immediately transported Eckman to the hospital, police said. 

According to police, nothing was suspicious about the incident and no charges are pending at this time.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
