Due to the severity of the accident, EMS responded to the scene. A passenger in the Honda required professional care, leading MSP to dispatch their Aviation Command. The injured, Charles Januska of Salisbury was airlifted to University of Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending. U.S. Route 50 & 13 Bypass was closed for approximately an hour following the crash, but is now reopened.
