Feb. 22—A deputy was hospitalized after a crash Monday morning, according to the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy, whose name has not been released citing privacy concerns, was involved in a multi-vehicle crash in the 6100 block of Green Valley Road (Md. 75) in New Market around 10:45 a.m., sheriff's office spokesman Todd Wivell said.

The deputy was responding to another vehicle incident on Old Annapolis Road in Libertytown when the crash occurred.

The deputy was driven to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Weather conditions didn't permit the deputy to be flown by Maryland State Police helicopter, Wivell said.

Other than back and neck pain, the deputy was in relatively good spirits, Wivell said.

The other driver was not injured and was medically cleared at the crash scene.

Wivell said that while the crash is still under investigation, it seems clear that the snowy and icy weather conditions Monday morning were a factor in the crash.

Md. 75 near the situation was closed for several hours, but had reopened by 2 p.m.

The FCSO asks anyone with information related to this incident to call 301-600-1046.
