On 05/03/2013, at approximately 0700 hours, Troopers from the Cumberland Barrack responded to westbound Interstate 68 near Vocke Road for two motor vehicle collisions. The first collision occurred when Bryan Jacobs of Clear Spring, Maryland fell asleep at the wheel, losing control of his 2003 BMW passenger vehicle and struck both guardrails. Jacobs was uninjured. Just after Jacobs’ collision, Brittany Wilson of Ridgeley, West Virginia was unable to control the speed of her 1998 Kia Sportage and collided into the rear of a 2008 Jeep Compass, operated by Craig Williams of Baltimore, Maryland, that was stopped in the lane of travel due to the collision in the roadway just ahead. Edith Williams, a passenger of the Jeep Compass and Brittany Wilson were both transported to the Western Maryland Regional Hospital for minor injuries. The westbound lanes of Interstate 68 were closed for approximately 45 minutes. Cumberland City Fire Department and EMS and LaVale Fire and Rescue provided medical support and traffic control assistance.
