Trooper 3 Transport

A Maryland State Police helicopter takes off from a field behind Whittier Elementary School Tuesday as it transports a patient following an all terrain vehicle crash.

A 20-year-old was flown to the shock trauma center in Baltimore after sheriff’s deputies said he crashed an ATV or dirt bike in northern Frederick County late Tuesday morning.

While investigators believe the w, sheriff’s deputies were not alerted to the incident until after the injured man, identified by sheriff’s deputies as Marcus Green, had left the scene, according to Taylor Clarke, a spokeswoman for the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office.

Green arrived at a doctor’s office in the Whittier neighborhood of Frederick shortly after the crash and the doctor called for emergency medical personnel after learning about the nature of Green’s injuries, Clarke said.

Investigators do not believe Green was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but further information regarding the nature and extent of his injuries remained unavailable Tuesday afternoon.

Green was flown by a Maryland State Police helicopter to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for treatment of injuries that were ultimately deemed not to be life-threatening, Clarke said.

Sheriff’s officer personnel were still investigating what led up to the crash, which only involved a single vehicle. Anyone who witnessed the crash or who can otherwise held sheriff’s deputies with their investigation should call Sgt. Michael Ochoa at 301-600-1046.

A 20 year old wrecked his bike, damaging no other property but his own, , hurt himself and went to the doctor's office to get checked out. The doctor called shock trauma to determine if the injuries were life threatening. They were not. Why exactly is this a news story?

I had the same exact thoughts last night. This isn’t a news story!

No, they were determined to be not life-threatening AFTER he went to shock-trauma (that's how I read the story). I hope his insurance does not pay.

Child flown to Shock Trauma, hope none of the BOE candidates were involved.

Another Covd-19 related incident that could've been prevented if he had stayed inside. (sarcasm alert) [scared][ninja]

Instead he acts selfish and jeopardizes others with his reckless behavior. (no sarcasm alert).

Um. Did you read Somethin in this article that the rest of us can't see? Lol

Riding around on those little boy machines without a helmet is a good form of population control.

Anyone know what the W is?

Looks like another editing issue. What happened to spellcheckers?

Perhaps he ran into a bush.
