Vehicle Overturns on Hatem Bridge, No Injuries

Thursday afternoon crash stopped traffic on eastbound Route 40.

A vehicle flipped over on the Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge Thursday at 3:11 p.m., according to Sgt. Jonathan Green of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Green said the driver of the 2006 Mazda, the lone occupant, refused medical treatment at the scene. Traffic was shut down for 20 minutes on eastbound Route 40 as emergency personnel cleared the road.

"It appears the operator lost control of the vehicle, struck the jersey wall and overturned the vehicle," Green said. "Weather conditions were not a factor in the crash."

The crash came as a trial regarding a 2001 double fatal collision on the Hatem Bridge gets underway.

Editor's note: This article was corrected. A previous article detailed a crash on Jackson Station Road at Route 40, in which one person was transported to a hospital with injuries. Patch regrets the error.

Pretty sure the accident at Jackson Station and the one on the Hatem had nothing to do with each other...they arent anywhere near each other.
