1 dead after truck crashes into Conowingo Dam

One person is dead following an early morning crash Tuesday morning at Conowingo Dam, Maryland State Police said.

Flyrob Wow mike that's really sad! As many times as I've crossed the Conowingo Dam in the past 30 years I often wondered how strong that south side concrete barrier was and if it could hold back a large vehicle and apparently not... 4 months ago
