WESTERNPORT - A Lonaconing man lost his life and two persons were injured in a two-vehicle accident in Route 135 near Westernport Thursday night.
Deputies with the Allegany County Sheriff's Office responded to Westernport Road (Route 135) approximately one-fourth mile east of the Westernport city limits at approximately 10 p.m. for a motor vehicle crash involving injuries.
The driver of one of the vehicles, Robert Charles Shockey, 33, of Lonaconing, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Upon the deputies’ arrival, EMS personnel from the Potomac No. 2 Fire Department and Tri-Towns EMS were treating the operator of a 2013 Ford truck who was identified as 49-year-old Michael Goldizen of New Creek.
Other members of the fire department were attempting to gain access to the passenger of the Ford vehicle that Shockey had been operating. The passenger, Tracey Shockey, 47, also from Lonaconing, was eventually removed from the vehicle and transported by helicopter to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.
The initial investigation of the crash determined that Mr. Shockey was traveling west on Westernport Road when his vehicle left the roadway and began traveling in the gravel portion of the shoulder. It appeared he attempted to correct this action and the vehicle began to skid, causing it to travel into the eastbound lane and strike a guardrail. The vehicle was then struck by the Ford truck operated by Goldizen.
Goldizen was treated at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center for minor injuries and released. Mrs. Shockey remains at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center being treated for serious injuries.
Units responding to the scene included the Allegany County Sheriff's Office, Potomac Fire Department, Tri-Towns EMS, Tri-Towns Volunteer Fire Department of Piedmont, Bloomington Fire Department, Maryland State Highway Administration, and Maryland State Police Aviation Division.
The roadway was closed for approximately three hours.
The incident remains under investigation by the Allegany County Sheriff's Office Crash Investigation Team.
