November 30th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

According to the Allegany County Department of Emergency Services, a man was killed Tuesday morning after he apparently suffered a medical emergency and crashed a vehicle into a guardrail on U.S. Route 40 at the Narrows. The driver, who had not been identified, was administered CPR at the scene of the 9:58 a.m. crash before he was taken to the hospital by a county ambulance. He died at UPMC Western Maryland. Witnesses reportedly observed the vehicle travel through the traffic light at the intersection of Routes 40 and 36 before the vehicle struck the guardrail where the vehicle came to rest. The Allegany County Sheriff's Office conducted an accident reconstruction that closed the highway for about an hour-and-a-half.
