Tractor Trailer Crashes Into Maryland Home; 5 Sent to Hospital

Five people, including two children, were hospitalized after a tractor trailer crashed into a home in Clements, Maryland, police said.

Early Saturday morning Bolden Macarthur Walker, 72, was driving a tractor trailer eastbound on Budds Creek Road in the area of a traffic circle at Colton Point Road when he lost control of the truck as it approached the roundabout, the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office said. 

The tractor trailer went through the traffic circle and struck a curb, causing it to cross the westbound lanes of Budds Creek Road and crash into a home.

Four people were inside the house, including a man, woman and two children.

The 38-year-old woman, 37-year-old man and Walker were sent to Prince George’s Hospital Center, which is more than 50 miles away from the crash site. The three adults sustained incapacitating injuries and are now stable, police said Saturday evening. Medics took the two children to Medstar St. Mary's Hospital out of precaution.

Budds Creek Road was closed near the crash and a D.C. Fire Tactical team and a crash reconstruction unit were called to the scene, police said.

The crash is under investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call police at 301-475-4200, extension 8109.
