A man was airlifted to the regional trauma center in Baltimore after a single vehicle accident near an Aberdeen industrial park Monday morning, police said.
At about 7:45 a.m., officers from the Aberdeen Police Department responded to the area of Hickory Drive and Rout 715 to investigate a report of a suspicious man walking in the area, who was bleeding from his head, according to a police department news release.
Prior to the officers arrival, a call was received reporting a motor vehicle crash in the area. Initial emergency radio broadcasts monitored said there was a motor vehicle crash with rescue and a rope was needed.
Officers arrived and found Bobby R. Cornett, 50, of the 3300 block of Churchville Road in Aberdeen, walking in the area.
According to police, Cornett was suffering from a head injury. A preliminary investigation revealed that Cornett was driving a 1997 Ford pickup north on Route 715.
The vehicle approached a dead end, struck a curb and guardrail and became airborne, according to the news release. The vehicle came to rest upside down, approximately 70 feet down a steep embankment.
Cornett was able to extricate himself and find help. Cornett was airlifted to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore by a Maryland State Police Medevac. His condition could not be learned Tuesday; however, the initial news release said he was supposed to be released from the hospital later Monday.
The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation, police said.
