A motor vehicle collision on Route 4 in Lothian seriously injured three people Mondaymorning. Just after 8 a.m. firefighters responded to an auto accident reported in the area of Route 4 and Route 258 (West Bay Front Road). Additional callers to 9-1-1 indicated that it was a head-on collision and that there were occupants trapped. Responders located a two-vehicle accident on Route 4 Southbound just south of Route 408 (Mt Zion Marlboro Road).
