3 People Seriously Injured in Single-Vehicle Collision in Olney

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department- Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) are investigating a single-vehicle collision that occurred early this morning in Olney.

At approximately 1:23 a.m., officers and Fire & Rescue personnel responded to the area of Hines Road and Macduff Avenue for a single-vehicle collision. Arriving officers observed the driver and front-seat passenger trapped in the vehicle; the rear-seat passenger had been ejected from the car.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible was traveling west on Hines Road (towards Cashell Road). For reasons still under investigation, the convertible left the roadway and struck a tree just prior to Macduff Avenue. The vehicle then continued across MacDuff Avenue and struck a light pole and a telephone box. It rolled over before coming to rest.

All three occupants of the vehicle were transported to local hospitals with serious injuries. The rear-seat passenger is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

All occupants of the vehicle are male. Both the driver and front-seat passenger are 17 years old. The age of the rear-seat passenger has not been confirmed.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate this collision at the scene. The names of the occupants of the vehicle will not be released until their families are notified. Anyone with information about this collision is asked to call the Montgomery County Police non-emergency number at 301-279-8000. Hines Road remains closed in the area of Macduff Avenue and motorists are asked to avoid the area until the investigation at the scene is complete.
