Southern Maryland News Net has posted a very interesting video recorded Tuesday from a camera on board a fire engine from the Bay District VFD in Lexington Park, Maryland (St. Mary’s County). In it, a driver has words with the firefighters on Engine 32 as they were driving along Great Mills Road returning from a kitchen fire. The driver then pulls in front of the engine and slams on his brakes, completely stopping in the middle of the road. After one of the firefighters confronts the driver, he pulls off and is followed by the fire engine to a parking lot. According to the Southern Maryland News Net there was an infant in the man’s car. Police were called.
A Trooper from the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barrack responded to the location of the vehicle that was parked and unoccupied in front of the Weis Market and waited for the driver to return to the vehicle.
When the driver came out of the store approximately 25 minutes later he saw the trooper and walked over to him and asked directions to Tulagi Place, and asked if it was in walking distance. The Trooper then asked the driver why he didn’t just drive the Sonata to Tulagi Place. The driver of the Sonata said it wasn’t his car and denied driving it. The Sonata was not owned by the driver, but he had been pulled over in it before by police. The driver of the Sonata was also suspended at the time of the incident.
As of Thursday police are still investigating and no charges have been filed.
