Police Investigating Vehicle in Creek

September 22, 2015

Firefighters and EMS personnel pulled up to the scene of a pickup that had been driven off the road into a creek expecting to find at least one person in need of medical attention, but after further investigation the pickup was empty.

   Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service and Montgomery County Police responded to a report of a truck which had just crashed through the guardrail and flipped into a creek on Clopper Road at Allspice Drive shortly after 10:30 pm Sunday night. MCFRS found a black 4x4 pickup truck which ended up on its side in Gunners Branch creek.

   The vehicle appeared to be travelling westbound on Clopper Road, lost control and crossed the lane of oncoming traffic and went through the guardrail about 10 yards ahead of the overpass at Gunners Branch.

 

   The front windshield of the vehicle had been broken, but no driver or passenger. Police officers and Fire Rescue personnel could be seen searching the wooded area, which is next to Great Seneca Creek State Park, for persons in need of medical attention. No persons were found.

   The vehicle was removed from the creek by a tow truck and the road was reopened after a few hours. Police are still investigating the whereabouts of the driver and anyone else who may have been in the pickup.
