A motorcyclist had to be airlifted to a trauma center after his motorcycle left the road and ended up 50-yards deep into a field in Boyds.
Montgomery County Police and Fire Rescue units were called to Darnestown Road, about 4,000 feet west of White Ground Road for the single-vehicle motorcycle crash. Arriving EMS units located the driver and determined he had Priority 2 trauma injuries, which means serious injuries but not immediately endangering the patient’s life. MCFRS requested a medevac helicopter.
Maryland State Police Helicopter Trooper 3 responded and landed in the field adjacent to where the motorcycle came to rest.
Police at the scene believe the driver of the motorcycle was heading south out Darnestown Road when it came upon a curve in the road and for unknown reasons lost control of the motorcycle.
