At 1540 hours St. Mary's Communications alerted Station 7, 9, and 3, NDW Patuxent River Crash 13, EMS Station 79, 38, 39, 83, 19, and St Mary's ALS, for a reported plane crash at the intersection of Three Notch Road and Airport Road in Hollywood. Engine 74, Rescue Squad 7, and Utility 7 responded with 9 volunteers on the call. Engine 74 arrived a short time later finding a glider that had struck a tree with 1 person still in the aircraft approximately 50 feet in the air. Lt. Tenaglia established "The Hollywood Command" and advised they had one patient trapped in the aircraft and one priority 4 patient on the ground holding all units. The crews on the scene utilized Tower 9 to remove the patient from the aircraft within 20 minutes and transferred care over to EMS on the scene. The patient was flown by Trooper 7 to Prince George's Trauma Center as a Category B Priority 2. Once the patient was transported, Command returned the bulk of the assignment holding it with units from Station 7 only. Engine 74 and Rescue Squad 7 remained on the scene for just under 2 hours before turning the scene over to MSP.
Later that evening Station 7 was alerted to assist MSP and NTSB with Lighting on the scene and removal of the aircraft. Truck 7 and Rescue Squad 7 responded and assisted units operating on the scene.
