Worcester County Sheriff's Office

(Sept. 13, 2019) A crash involving a Worcester County Sheriff’s Office deputy shut down a portion of Route 113 in Berlin last Friday afternoon.

Lt. Ed Schreier, public information officer for the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, said the deputy was on his way to assist at an accident near Ocean Pines when his car was hit by a driver of another vehicle at the intersection of Route 113 and Old Ocean City Road.

Schreier said the two-vehicle wreck happened around 3 p.m. on Sept. 6 and “traffic was diverted for about one hour.”  

 The deputy and the driver of the other vehicle were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff’s office. Both people were treated and released as of Tuesday afternoon.

The circumstances leading up to the wreck are unclear, but it is under investigation.
