Due to a nationwide service outage affecting Comcast (our provider), our Non-Emergency lines are not working right now. As Comcast works to resolve the issue, we ask that you wait to make reports for non-emergencies. The 911 center is working with no issues to our operations, but please refrain from calling 911 unless it is an emergency. We will update you when the lines are working. Thank you for your patience. ... See MoreSee Less

Even with a 4 way stop people are blowing thru there.
My mom was the victim. They had to cut her out of the white vehicle. She stopped at the stop sign and no one was coming from either direction. She proceeded to cross when the ensuing vehicle speeded straight through the stop sign. The person in the other vehicle must have been going 70 mph in the 40 mph zone. My mom’s vehicle flipped and turned on it’s side. Her and my stepfather are lucky to be alive. She had to get a medivac to Medstar Washington Hospital. She’s seems to be recovering. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
I would like to add to what Jack said... my Father and Stepmother are extremely lucky to be alive!! I would also like to extend my sincere appreciation to the person who stopped to call 911 as well as all of the first responders who took great care of them! My family and I thank you from the bottom of our heart!
I am so sorry to hear this . Hope for a fast recovery
So glad you’re ok !
People need to slow down! Drivers in Charles County have become so dangerous and reckless!! I can barely get in and out of my neighborhood off Billingsley Road! Slow down!!! More radar or speed bumps are needed!
So sorry for your accident and I will be praying for you. I’m sending prayers and positive thoughts for a speedy recovery. 😇🤗🙏💕🤓 Diane Walker
omg! thank God you both are okay. People just aren't paying attention! we always have to look out for the other guy. Even at a stop light I always hesitate before going because I have been in a similar situation. Had I not looked both ways before proceeding even though I had the green light I would have been a goner in front of our neighborhood.
Thank you LaPlata Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squads 3 and all those who helped our friend and family members. Wow!
Thank you Jack for the update!
Wow! People need to slow down and pay attention to what’s going on etc. cuz when they don’t innocent people get hurt or die... so glad your parents are ok
