September 5th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

On Saturday, September 3, 2022 at approximately 7:35 PM, units from the Cumberland Police Department and the Cumberland Fire Department responded to the 1000 block of W. Industrial Blvd. for a motor vehicle crash. A Cumberland police officer was on patrol when he observed a vehicle overturned, resting on its roof on W. Industrial Blvd.  The crash had just occurred.  Another vehicle that was involved in the crash was stopped on the shoulder of the roadway. Both vehicles had sustained significant damage. As a result of the investigation at the scene, the following facts were determined.  Vehicle #1, operated by Savannah Turner, was pulling out from a parking lot onto W. Industrial Blvd.  Turner failed to see Vehicle #2 which was traveling on W. Industrial Blvd.  Vehicle #1 pulled into Vehicle #2’s path of travel.  As a result, Vehicle #2 collided with Vehicle #1 causing Vehicle #2 to leave the roadway and rollover multiple times prior to striking a tree in the median. Turner was determined to be a fault for the crash. The occupants of vehicle #2 were transported to UPMC Western Maryland by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.
