Md. State Police Report Numerous Crashes, DUI Arrests Over Thanksgiving Holiday

Posted: Updated:

PIKESVILLE, Md.- Maryland State Police say they are investigating numerous incidents that occurred over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, including three deadly crashes.

Overall, troopers responded to 2,943 calls for service, including 409 crashes from Wednesday through Sunday. In addition, state police recorded 119 arrests for impaired driving, and 124 criminal arrests, while also issuing 4,442 citations and 4,894 warnings.

Troopers also responded to two separate multi-vehicle crashes, one in western Maryland, and one on the Eastern Shore.

A 58-vehicle incident in Garrett County Sunday around noon sent at least 10 people to the hospital and remains under investigation.

Another multi-vehicle crash Sunday night on the Eastern Shore along Route 50 near Memory Gardens Lane in Hebron also remains under investigation.

State police are investigating fatal crashes across Maryland including one late Saturday night in St. Mary’s County, one Sunday in Caroline County, and one this morning in Beltsville, Prince George’s County.

Starting last Wednesday, Nov. 27, troopers conducted targeted impaired-driving enforcement efforts at locations around the state based on historic trends of having a high volume of impaired driving incidents. One of those initiatives in Worcester County resulted in 92 traffic stops with nine drivers arrested for DUI.

On Friday afternoon, the Maryland State Police Aviation Command was called in to hoist an injured hiker from a ravine in Allegany County to transport the injured person to the Western Maryland Regional
Medical Center in Cumberland.
