Fallston fire chief taken to shock trauma after four-vehicle accident

On his way to another accident in the area, a Fallston Volunteer Company chief was involved in an accident Monday evening, police said, and was transported to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment.

Driving through the intersection at Mountain and Belair roads in a 2010 Ford truck, with sirens sounding and lights flashing, William Leonard Rosenberg, 35, of Reckord Road in Fallston, slowed in order to clear the intersection, according to an accident report from the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

After entering the intersection, another vehicle failed to stop, a 2011 Nissan Murano driven by Samantha Janine Francalancia, 27, of Bel Air, and hit Rosenberg in his 2010 Ford truck.

Francalancia had been headed north on Belair Road (Route 1) and Rosenberg was headed south on Mountain Road (Route 152) at the time of the accident, which occurred around 6:18 p.m., according to the accident report. After being struck, the emergency vehicle hit two other vehicles and another was hit by debris.

As a result of the accident, Rosenberg was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore by ambulance, according to the accident report. The vehicle he was driving is owned by the Fallston Volunteer Fire & Ambulance Co., according to the report.

Without disclosing any names, Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association spokesperson Dave Williams said Tuesday that the patient transported to shock trauma had potentially serious but non life-threatening injuries.

Williams also added that several people on scene refused medical care, although three people from the vehicles involved in the accident were taken by ambulance to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air with non life threatening injuries.

These patients included Michelle Lynn McComas, 40, and Dennis Clinton McComas, 52, both of Dundalk, as well as Rosina Elizabeth Mays, 65, of Middle River. Michelle McComas was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche and in a 2008 Chevrolet Impala was Peter Vincent Sclafani, 28, of Cockeysville, who was not transported to a hospital.

Samantha Francalancia and her passenger, 29-year-old Joseph Vito Francalancia, also of Bel Air, were not transported to a hospital.

The driver and passengers in a fifth vehicle, which was hit by debris but not directly involved in the crash, were not transported either. They included Robin Nicole Waskiewicz, 30; Justin Sheppard, 16; Arianan Schillfarth, 8 and Rylie Schillfarth, 2, all of Belcamp, according to the accident report.
