Just before midnight on Tuesday, July 2, a 2-vehicle crash occurred in the 8400 block of Ardwick-Ardmore Road in Landover. A sedan carrying 3 teenagers became partially wedged underneath a tractor trailer during the crash. The teens, despite having sustained serious injuries, were able to escape from their vehicle before both vehicles burst into flames. The trailer was carrying a product used in the manufacture of mattress. It required about 20 minutes to knock the fire down.
Two of the injured teens were transported by paramedics to a local Trauma Center. One teen was taken by a Maryland State Police meda-vac helicopter to a Trauma Center in Baltimore.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
County Police were on the scene investigating the crash.
