Frederick City Police

Frederick Police Department vehicles are pictured.

A man was flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma after a single-vehicle crash in Frederick Wednesday.

He was listed in critical condition Wednesday night after his vehicle struck a tree at the intersection of Laurel Wood Way and Monocacy Boulevard at approximately 1:35 p.m., according to Frederick Police Lt. Andrew Alcorn.

He was trapped for approximately 15 minutes until he was freed by Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services personnel, Alcorn said. A fire hydrant was damaged in the crash.

As of about 3 p.m. Wednesday, Alcorn said the roadway had been cleared. In the past five years, there have been nine accidents involving injuries at that location, he said. Alcorn did not have further details.
