U.S. 220 head-on collision claims life of Keyser resident

Crash also sends Cumberland motorist to hospital with injuries

RAWLINGS — A Keyser, W.Va., man was killed and a Cumberland man injured Saturday morning following a head-on vehicle accident on U.S. Route 220.

Frederick Hartford Washington, 46, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 7:22 a.m. crash that happened north of Fort Hill Ridge Road, Maryland State Police said.

Washington was driving a 2006 Chevrolet Impala northbound when he lost control, crossed the center line and struck a southbound 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Roger Lynn Huffman, 54, police said.

Huffman was transported to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Allegany County’s snow emergency plan was in effect at the time of the accident, police said, but it was unclear weather road conditions contributed to the crash.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact Senior Trooper T. Wagoner or Tfc. Joey at 301-729-2101.
